MyData Internals

People around the world are enjoying the holiday season and it was a quiet week on the MyData Slack channel. So there was time to look back and inspired by Viivi I created two word clouds about the post authors of the MyData Weekly Digest and the tags associated with posts.

       

Additionally, I show the graphs for unique visitors to each issue of the digest vs. number of posts per week on the Slack channel - it clearly shows that MyData folks know to celebrate! :-)
