Fair Warning - Diversity, bushfires, and data cupcakes
By Sophie Warnes • Issue #103 • View online
Hello! This week’s issue is a bit late as I was in London spending time with my son and, uh, the rest of my family…
A few random non-data things:
  • Dear Evan Hansen is incredible and if you’re in London or New York and looking for a thing to see, definitely see it!
  • Laugh at this idiot falling into a cartoon hole. [2018 but still funny]
  • RE the royal news of the week: I, too, wish to move to North America and become financially independent. Fingers crossed it happens in 2020 eh.

It’s a bit of a shorter one this week as I think I’m still struggling with being back at work and the whole post-Christmas feeling.
