Thanks to Our FlowingData Sponsors

Posted to Sponsors  |  Nathan Yau

As many of you know I’m just one graduate student maintaining FlowingData. Needless to say I would not have been able to handle the financial load without the FlowingData sponsors. Projects like your.flowingdata and FlowingPrints (coming soon) probably wouldn’t be around either.

So thank you, sponsors for your support. Please do check out their offerings. They all aim to make data useful, which is what FlowingData is all about.
