Thank You to FlowingData Sponsors

It’s been something like a year and a half now since I started FlowingData. It has grown quite a bit since I was talking only to myself.

Fortunately, I have these two great sponsors to thank for helping this little blog of mine keep running as well as giving me the chance to give back to all you readers.

Tableau Software – It’s about statistical visualization for Tableau. Analytics is the name and useful visualization is the game.
