Data Visualization of the DF Archive, Article by Article

Rather remarkable bit of work by Kemper Smith from Distant Shape, spelunking the DF archive. He read and tagged all 963 articles I wrote (before yesterday’s). I feel a little bad, as I’ve been tagging my articles all along, but my tagging data isn’t (yet) publicly exposed. If it were it could have saved Smith quite a bit of work. But on the other hand, I’m fascinated by the tags he chose (e.g. “Gruber Has Inside Information”, “Was Wrong About Something”). The whole desktop-vs.-mobile color spectrum thing is eye opening, as are the cyclical patterns for article length.
