|I have been asked all these questions. You can also contact me either on twitter or here.|
Q What are your favorite programs?
A My true loves are d3 and illustrator, though am currently having affairs with google fusion and mapbox.
Q Can I repost your stuff/use it in a presentation/etc?
A Yes, but please link back or credit.
Q Who built your website? What platform did they use?
Q How do you get ideas? Can I tell you my idea?
A Boredom, irritation, and rumination. Yes.
Q Any recs?
A Edward Tufte and Mike Bostock. Both are dreamy.
Q Any recs outside of data viz?
A Philz Coffee, Haruki Murakami, John Steinbeck, the 99% Invisible podcast, all lowercase (FOR LIFE), general usage of irony (see previous parenthetical), having a really weird last name because you'll ALWAYS WIN SEARCH FOR YOURSELF!!
Q What's the best response you've ever gotten to your site?
A I liked this, this, and someone once told me they used my charts to successfully get a date. Hee hee. More recently, I received an adoring email from someone named "YOLO SWAG" which I took to mean I'm hip with the kiddos.
Hard to top this though:
Q Where you at, girl?
A Brooklyn, baby.
