Welcome, Boing Boing readers. If you're new to FlowingData, you might want to read the about page to find out what FlowingData is all about. Essentially, I like to cover how people from different fields -- statistics, computer science, design, etc -- are using data to explore ourselves and the environment around us, mainly with data visualization.
Oftentimes, data (or information) just gets overlooked or misinterpreted. We should work on changing that, and I think that data visualization is the way to make people see.
