Fair Warning - You feel it in your fingers, you feel it in your toes

Hello. It is I, creator, consumer, purveyor, of ridiculous internet content. I dare you to read this tweet and NOT sing it to Milkshake.
This week I was up in Birmingham as I’d been asked to judge some BBC awards in data journalism, and I also spoke to the journalists who have just started on the BBC’s Shared Data Unit scheme. Long story short, I had a blast and everyone was lovely. Yay, good times.
Some random things I have enjoyed this week: Marxist dinosaur cops. French Kings dying in ridiculous ways. Gustave Doré’s steel etchings for The Raven. Now to the meaty bit…

On the home front
Premier League: 11 of 20 clubs could have made profits in 2016-17 without fans at games
Over the pond
What cars do embassies use?
Odds and ends
Colorism in High Fashion
Could we incorporate data visualisation into everyday objects like receipts? Maybe - this person has tried just that. I kind of like it but I can’t *really* see the point of it and I know this is rigidly pragmatic but sometimes I am too sensible for my own good.
Bad chart of the week
This one is a real cracker in that each time I look at it I think of a totally different funny aspect to it. However. Do not do this:
I’m exploring rotating sponsorship options for Fair Warning. If you’re interested in potentially sponsoring for a few weeks, give me a shout (reply to this email, not ‘please come to Cardiff and shout at me in the street’ - that would be rude and weird).
That’s everything this week. If you enjoyed this issue, please forward it to people you think will like it, or consider buying me a coffee to say thanks. You can also become a Patron for Fair Warning. See you next week!
