Hi, Boing Boing readers. Welcome to FlowingData. For the new visitors, here’s the rundown (and for the old visitors, welcome back). My name is Nathan, and I’m a statistics graduate student / computer science graduate obsessed with data and visualization. Here on FlowingData I cover how statisticians, computer scientists, designers, and other experts use data to help us better understand ourselves and our surroundings.

For more details, check out the about page and feel free to contact me if you have any questions. If you like what you see, you might want to subscribe to the feed.

Again, thanks to David and Boing Boing for linking here, and again, thanks to Mike for making the suggestion!
