Thank You to the FlowingData Sponsors

May 17, 2009

I always chuckle a little bit whenever I get an email from someone who thinks FlowingData is a big design firm. I’m totally flattered that it comes off that way. I mean, I must be doing something right. In reality though, I’m just one statistics graduate student working towards my PhD, so FlowingData wouldn’t be around today, if it weren’t for these generous sponsors (and the best readers around) who help FlowingData not suck.

NetCharts — Build business dashboards that turn data into actionable information with dynamic charts and graphs.
