    There's also a set of screencsts on d3.js that covers both basic and advanced topics with Tributary, the dot enter mixtapes:

    I wouldn't expect the organizers to know about NACIS, but thought the presenter would. I'll ping Ragi, who runs the GeoMeetup, and maybe there could be a co-sponsored Meetup at Code for America sometime in November.

    Yikes, that is unfortunate timing regarding the NACIS national meeting. I don't think any of the organizers of the group are cartographers, which might explain the oversight. This is our first d3.geo meetup.

    If a couple cartographers in the group are willing to help organize, we could do a second geo meetup next month. Have any ideas?

    It's unfortunate that a geo talk is scheduled at the same time the North American Cartographic Information Society's national meeting is happening in Portland. (Open Street Map's State of the Map and a WhereCamp are also happening up there that week.)
