Hey Ricky, you brought up a really good question.

Thank you so much for the awesome response!

I hope “dribbble decoration” wasn’t offensive. I agree with you–much of what goes live gets negotiated and overthought past the point of the original inspired aesthetic.

I would love to see the gap shrink between functional and aspirational dashboards. As d3 and other data viz tools grow in popularity, I think we’ll begin to see frameworks that offer more visually rich methods of showing data. As that happens, that gap will shrink.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
