This is what passes for a data visualization on the White House website. I know what my next viz makeover is going to be.

Our society didn't redefine marriage yesterday. We redefined it many years ago when we began treating marriage more as a contractual relationship than a covenantal union. Many millions of married men and women need help to find the love, grace, humility, and forgiveness it takes to mend and sustain a lifelong bond. Several local churches have a ministry called Re|Engage to help those couples and I would invite anyone to take part in it.

This perspective on transgenderism from a feminist writing in the New York Times is fascinating. 

"For me and many women, feminist and otherwise, one of the difficult parts of witnessing and wanting to rally behind the movement for transgender rights is the language that a growing number of trans individuals insist on, the notions of femininity that they’re articulating..."

"The “I was born in the wrong body” rhetoric favored by other trans people doesn’t work any better and is just as offensive, reducing us to our collective breasts and vaginas. Imagine the reaction if a young white man suddenly declared that he was trapped in the wrong body and, after using chemicals to change his skin pigmentation and crocheting his hair into twists, expected to be embraced by the black community."
Do women and men have different brains? Back when Lawrence H. Summers was president of Harvard and suggested that they did, the reaction was swift and merciless. Pundits branded him sexist. Faculty members deemed him a troglodyte. Alumni withheld donations. But when Bruce Jenner said much the ...

Many have been predicting this day would come. In a desire to embrace inclusive language (regardless of any objective framework), they are going to find that contradictory claims across the various grievance groups will become irreconcilable.

Another reason not to feed the trolls...or pay any attention to internet comments.
Lyudmila Savchuk is suing her old employer, the Internet Research Agency, for moral damages and seeking to close the company.

I play on a friends correspondence server, where I've created several chess variants. Let me know if that kind of thing interests you.

Based on this, a majority of Americans believe Jesus was a sinner. If that were true, how much more sinful would that make the rest of us? Thank God his sinless sacrifice paid for it all.

Woah, those graphs are hard to look at, but the results they show are even more bitter to swallow.

Yonatan Zunger originally shared to Brief Dispatches:
 
A group of researchers has built a way to mine the giant corpora of pictures people have posted publicly (on sites like Picasa and Flickr) and build time-lapse images of landmarks. This involves huge technical challenges of identifying landmarks, building 3D models of them, stabilizing the images, and normalizing the motion and lighting -- and so far, they've managed to find over 20,000 such images, showing everything from changing seasons, to building construction, to moving glaciers.

They've made a video showing off their favorites: https://youtu.be/wptzVm0tngc. You can read the paper at http://grail.cs.washington.edu/projects/timelapse/ , and hopefully they'll soon have a way to see all their results.

When I first began exploring the subject of data visualization, I had no idea how much one piece of data-driven artwork could inspire me. I had collected a lot of bible-related data by then and was looking for ways to represent it visually. Then, I discovered a wonderfully complex, colorful piece of art with a simple message about the interconnectedness of scripture. 

This is an interactive remake of the original piece by Chris Harrison.

My day job is to collect and interpret business-related data. My passion is to collect and interpret Bible-related data.  Go to metavbible.com to see what I mean.
