If you invested $1,000 in these #vaccine stocks a year ago, how would they have done? #dataviz For reference, the stock market as a whole (e.g., DJIA) grew about +44.9% in that time range. Source: https://t.co/I8F7kBasNh https://t.co/t27BfVGqf2

U.S. streaming services market share, 2020 vs. 2021. #dataviz #Netflix is still rapidly growing, but lost significant market share in the streaming boom over the past year. Source: https://t.co/MFxJShNuvg https://t.co/8407SQYEUk

Have I mentioned how much I love the #PNW? There's always a new adventure to aspire to around here. Someone took this picture from Mount St. Helens yesterday at 4am. Milky Way is front and center. Lights in the distance is #Portland. Source: https://t.co/MgxYZbfjg1 https://t.co/JweRlLRzyf

I've been tracking my #PowerLifting progress and comparing my lifting milestones to random people and objects in the world for fun. #dataviz I can lift a medium-sized refrigerator. I can barely lift @Schwarzenegger. I can easily lift @ElonMusk. Post: https://t.co/Bv1lEYYsJf https://t.co/neTeB8jO8A

Anyone know of a fairly comprehensive database of common objects/people/animals/etc. and their typical weight?

Living in the #PNW, it's been insane watching house prices skyrocket up here. Some neighbors have complained about their properties going up $100k + in a year. #dataviz Source: https://t.co/xDjXOa9YN4 https://t.co/RRCg3D55gP

In advance of tomorrow's official release of my book Paper Trails, today I'm releasing US Post Offices - the underlying spatial-historical dataset that made the book possible. Here's a peek into the data: https://t.co/unXK4ZfBgl

On a day for the history books, @TheAmandaGorman delivered a poem that more than met the moment. Young people like her are proof that "there is always light, if only we're brave enough to see it; if only we're brave enough to be it." https://t.co/mbywtvjtEH

You can cook a chicken by slapping it at 3725.95 mph, an impossible task by any human means. If you do succeed however, you will not only cook the chicken but also decimate its entire structure, causing a violent explosion. This is a simulation of the slap using FEA. https://t.co/QDjEbcuQnq
