A few weeks ago, in probably a troll-like rage against the Internet, I started a tumblr blog

curating examples of charts with truncated y-axes: Abbreviated Y-Axis.  Posting examples mostly sans comments, I just felt for some reason like this needed to exist in the world of data viz.

I hope to do more and more of these kinds of things this year, to write and talk to peers and colleagues more and more about data viz, information design, and data graphics.  I’m planning to write more about the goals of 2015 I’ve been tossing around in my mind for the past few months, including some updates on my new day job out on the prairie.
