Best of FlowingData: September 2008

September was another good month for FlowingData. We surpassed 5,000 subscribers for the first time - 5,139 to be more precise - and saw more visitors than any other previous month. That's not that much by Internet standards, but by statistician standards, that's usually enough for the Law of Large Numbers to kick in.

Thank you everyone who continues to spread the word about FlowingData. The blog wouldn't be the same without you.
