- I’ve moved so much I’m not totally sure how many. 22. Depending on how long you have to live somewhere to make it count as a move. My most recent move happened fast. I lived in that apartment longer than I’ve lived anywhere else in my life, and this is the longest years in a row I’ve ever lived in any city. It feels good to have a home I like. Moving is dislocation and disruption; it’s hard in any circumstance. I’ve moved broke, depressed, divorced, unemployed. Here at the end of 2022 I’m happy and working and creating and I’ve got family and friends and the means to take action and a I have a terrific girlfriend I’m moving in with. Here’s to 2023!

- Spielberg’s Films by year of release vs year set
The other day, over on twitter, Todd Vaziri sent a lazyweb request that piqued my interest: free cinema chart idea chart the films of steven spielberg and graph the release date minus the year the film takes place you know, for fun How does one do timelines these days anyway? I had a vague memory…
- Sparklines in Excel courtesy seminar by Jordan Goldmeier
I attended Jordan Goldmeier’s (advancedxl.com) seminar on data visualization in Excel via one of Creative Morning‘s Field Trips. It is far easier to do cool stuff in Excel than I remember. Behold a sparkline bar graph of my ArtLung blog post counts by month since 2001.
- I started blogging in late February 2001. Each line here represents a year of blogging, a line based on the count of posts per day with a bit of added noise added for aesthetic effect. I am fascinated by visualizations of data, and it was fun to toy with the aggregate counts of thousands of blog posts over time and see an image develop. It’s not what I expected it to look like as I exported data from my WordPress instance, but it definitely catches my eye. Inspired by Peter Saville’s iconic album cover for Joy Division’s album Unknown Pleasures. That artwork was based on data from a pulsar.
- Blog Post Visualization + Code
I’ve been doing maintenance galore on this site. I have a hand-written theme and I’ve been doing things like returning the footer to a good shape and sweating the responsive details of it. I first wrote that code in 2010 but I’ve adapted it to be a bit better and now am using CSS Grid…
- Most Steps.
I did an export using Pedometer++ and here’s a graph of my steps for the last several years. That corresponds to a 4 and a half mile walk I took. I’m not sure why there’s an off by one error or why there are so many zero-step days. (Was I bedridden?) But I love the…
- Step Count
I’ve no idea what to do with this. But I use Pedometer++ and had the data export and so voila, I have a graph of my steps. See it at http://joecrawford.com/steps/ I’m using the Google Charts “Scatter Chart” visualization. And I put my code into a Github repository.
- WebSanDiego Mailing List Visualization
So I’m back in San Diego. And part of my identity when I lived here was starting and cultivating the websandiego mailing list. It started on ONElist, and they were bought by eGroups, and eventually Yahoo! where it is now. It all started in March of 1999. We’ve moved from Usenet and Friendster to MySpace,…
- Visualizing and Emerging Blog Content
As I mentioned, I’ve been doing extensive reclamation of my blog archives in such a way that old headers get displayed. So you can see that in action for the Blog Archives from September 2002. The first row is is a set of buttons: back one year, back one month, archives for the current year,…
