We’d like to give a shout out to one of our friends, UNC Charlotte Professor Robert Kosara who writes the blog EagerEyes.org. Professor Kosara has always been a kindred spirit - if you're not already a fan, his blog is one of the stand-outs on information visualization. Tableau's Director of Visual Analytics Jock Mackinlay and the Professor have even judged viz competitions together (specifically the City of Charlotte's Business Analytics Olympiad - coming up again for a return appearance next month).

And now it seems the Professor has a strong sense of humor, becoming a key contributor to today’s #joyof6 conversation. Check out his string of fun tweets about the #joyof6.

Thanks Professor Kosara for your participation and sense of fun. If you ever give up the subject of information visualization, you could do well with clever word play!

P.S. For Twitter fans, be sure and follow Robert at @eagereyes.

You might wanna censor your headlines. "Uncensored" and "Tableau Software" in one sentence... Not Everyone is going to find that as funny as I did...
