Data Underload: One Thousand Posts

Posted to Data Underload  |  Nathan Yau

On June 25, 2007 I published the first FlowingData post. Today, here is the one thousandth. I asked what I should do for this special occasion and pretty much everyone said I should visualize the posts somehow, so here we go.
