Fair Warning - Automated cars, ageing Japan, and German migration
By Sophie Warnes • Issue #79 • View online
Hi! I completely forgot to do this last week because I was busy learning how to play the piano, and yesterday I was baby wrangling. And nobody tells you this, but it turns out baby wrangling is really time-consuming and tiring.
A couple of weeks ago I was a guest judge for the Iron Viz Europe contest, run by Tableau. I’m really happy with the three finalists (all of them are linked to in that blogpost) but most of the submissions were pretty fascinating.
Congratulations to the finalists and good luck in Berlin ;)

On the home front
Council elections: 'Not enough' women and minorities stand
Apparently people care about the Royal baby and what it will be called (seriously, do they not have more interesting hobbies?) - I quite liked this name chart from Alex:
Over the pond
Self-driving cars: Who to save, who to sacrifice?
Elsewhere
The million who left / Die Millionen, die gingen
Odds and ends
Missing Numbers
How do you create a T-Rex using a map? Like this, apparently (thank you TerribleMaps for all your work).
Lastly, it’s nothing to do with data and everything to do with what it means to be human, and coming to terms with death and grief and making something beautiful from it. I cried the whole way through. A genuinely heartbreaking but beautifully written piece from Jayson Greene’s forthcoming memoir, At Once We Saw Stars: “There are things you see with your body, not with your eyes. Stepping away, I feel something evaporate, a quantum of my soul, perhaps, burning up on contact.”
That’s everything this week. Hope you didn’t miss Fair Warning/me too much last week. If you enjoyed this issue, please forward it to people you think will like it, consider buying me a coffee or supporting Fair Warning on Patreon from as little as $4 a month. See you next week!
