Here's a neat feature on biblewebapp.com: customize how to handle "you" singular or plural based on regional dialect. Check y'allselves!

hmmm... I totally can't see myself using that. There's implied tone in "you lot" - it's not just a plural "you", it suggests a casual conversation. And I suspect there are similar nuances in some of the other cases too.

Cool stuff released today:

Adobe XD for Windows - I've been using this app on my personal Mac for interactive mockups. Now I can use it on my PC at work, which is a great thing for me.

Project Felix - I've used 3D rendering interfaces like this before. They were easy to learn but way too expensive. Adobe CC is expensive too, but nowhere near the price of competitors.

There are several informative, beautiful maps here. My favorites are the railroad and waterway tonnage because they're a little different than the kind I see most often and the insight jumps right out. I used ot work in the power industry and could never find data to map the whole power grid. I want to know how they got it!

Here's an idea to try during the sermon today: sketch it. I did this when we started bringing our 5-year-old to the main service and it helped him concentrate on what was said. It helped me, too. These days we don't do it during the sermon but it still helps with personal Bible study.

I remember the recent Easter Sunday when I tried sketching the morning sermon. My five year old son copied me instead of drawing his usual…

It's not every day I get to record a podcast with the Chief Product Officer at a tech company valued at $3 billion. Naturally, we talked about office pranks and geeked out about databases and product development.

He's the most accessible executive I've ever heard of, spending around half his time just talking to customers (and partners like +InterWorks).

Have you heard of Francois Ajenstat? He's only one of the Chief Product Officer at Tableau. He stopped by to talk with Zen Master Robert about #data16, his history at Microsoft, his new role, how to fill buckets, where you can find his name in all kinds of databases and much more. It's his job to talk and listen to you about where Tableau is headed, and boy is he passionate about you guys!

I gave http://Viz.Bible a much-needed design update last night. The front page now has a gallery of my best Bible-related visualizations and easy access to each one.

Thanks. I use an old version of Dreamweaver and it's built from scratch (and therefore the opposite of modern....).

Amazing project: you can explore 3D models of human fetal development inside and out. All you need is Adobe Acrobat (which most people do)!
