Caption Contest – Win The Numerati by Stephen Baker

Posted to Contests  |  Nathan Yau

As promised, it’s time for a FlowingData contest. To the winner goes The Numerati by Stephen Baker, a book about how data play a huge role in our future. Indeed, it does. Stephen also keeps an interesting blog, and I encourage you to check it out.

How to Win a Free Book

It’s easy. Write a caption for the above graph and leave it in the comments below. Whoever comes up with the best caption by the end of 11:59pm on Sunday wins. By best, I mean whichever I find the most amusing or clever. For example – “drunkeness vs stupidity” or “The more I eat per day the fatter I will get.” You get the idea. I’m sure you all can come up with something much better.

I’m making it one entry per person, so make it a good one, and make sure you use a valid email so that I can contact you if you win.

Good luck! I’m looking forward to what you all come up with.
