I started this blog in 2008 as a simple personal repository of interesting data visualizations and graphic design resources. Watching it grow over the years has been a fascinating experience. I am sad to say that I am stepping away from day to day updates.

I have learned a lot, and met some amazing designers, programmers, and journalists – thank you for all your creativity and hard work. My career has shifted towards strategic planning and communications, but I will always have a place in my heart for a great chart, map, or interactive dashboard.

At it’s peak ChartPorn had more than 25,000 Twitter, Facebook, and RSS followers – and more than 300,000 monthly visitors. In the end we shared over 2,600 posts. I hope you found them inspiring.

Nice work by NPR – though I generally prefer non-contiguous cartograms.
