I've written a blog post that looks at my process (personal, not technical) behind making a visualisation/sonification like this covid19 one, including some versions that never saw the light of day. propolis.io/2021/04/17/the-hig

Social media managers: Initiate protocol 'cancel all scheduled tweets'

Saw this out of the corner of my eye and thought it was the cookie monster

Can't believe I went to Hyderabad a couple of years ago and no-one told me to go and visit the Ministry of Fisheries.

Day 2 of my @thecarpentries@twitter.com instructor training this afternoon / evening. Great session yesterday, and an interesting group of people that I'm being trained with/by.

Just done an excellent diversity and inclusion session with @opendatamcr@twitter.com board, delivered by @ThatGirlVim@twitter.com & @DiverseNett@twitter.com. Grim statistics from their survey on perceptions of race in the GM tech sector. Looking forward to debrief in a couple of wks and getting some actions agreed
