  • The Feedback Loop Sign-Up Form: January 2022  This data vizzing workshop was started by Joshua Smith and is based on creative art workshops. He put it best: "The idea of the Feedback Loop, and of creative arts workshops in general, is meant to test the subjective and aesthetic elements against peers. It's meant to provide diversity of perspectives, because what works for one person may not work for another. And, what I've learned now, it can create an incredible community of people devoted to helping one another grow as artists." 
  • Sign up to be a panelist for the 3charts@3 Live: A Mystery Chart Show featuring topics like personal finance, energy, healthcare and more!
