Have You Checked Out the FlowingData Forums Yet?

Posted to Forums  |  Nathan Yau

I started the FlowingData forums a few months ago to give others a chance to start their own conversations or to get advice on personal projects that need some attention. I admittedly haven’t done a very good job of promoting the forums, so I thought I’d give them a little bump.

If you’ve got something interesting to share with the FlowingData community – post it to the forums. If you’ve got a question about the best way to visualize a dataset or want some honest opinions on how to improve an existing chart or graph – post it to the forums. I’ll post the most interesting and useful discussions here on the blog once a month.

So what’re you waiting for? Sign up for a free account, and share with the rest of us. Stop being so greedy.
