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.

With the exception of the holiday gaps and the early months, I’ve managed to stay surprisingly consistent, yeah?

Thanks for reading, everyone. Gold star for anyone who remembers what FlowingData’s theme color was in 2007.
