Choropleth slider no traditional legend on front today. 🎉 More and more I think this is the way to go: light = less, dark = more. Very often readers don't want dense legends with i.e. *exactly* how many pain pills is dark pink, darker pink or darker...pink

Would the climate warming stripes be better with a legend? No further questions, your honour.

I’d side with John on this. I don’t see the warming stripes as being likely intended to be read as much as ‘felt’. I’d consider them to be exhibitory pieces in nature, with general perceiving of roughly how 🥵 <—-> 🥶 sufficient and this is achievable to any viewer without a key

You can feel them the same way with a tiny legend as a footnote. And the subset of readers who'd like to check some details can do that. Everybody benefits

I’d agree that in many places, where the warming stripes charts are published you SHOULD have that annotation. However, in some of the ways they are experienced by many people they exist more as artistic assets (gifs, textiles, scarves) and so feel you can make a case to remove.

You are on my wish-list for first batch of episodes! I just need to work out exactly what my new podcast is specifically about, is it audio or +video, how long, when I’ll be able do it, what’s it called...
