FlowingData Takes A Break

Posted to Site News  |  Nathan Yau

FlowingData posts will slow down this holiday week. I’m going to be busy watching all the movies coming out this Christmas and eating a lot of food that will inevitably cause extended hours of sleep. I hope all of you get to do the same or something similar. Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

Regular posting will resume on January 1, 2009 to satisfy your data visualization needs. Try not to take it too hard, but if it’s too much to handle, try the FlowingData archives. There’s lots of good stuff in there.
