Nathan Yau over at FlowingData has a nice post up today pointing his many readers to some of my recent work - Word Portraits of Famous People - Einstein and Ginger the Cockapoo. I must admit I never expected to see my dog's name mentioned together in a headline with Einstein.

So what is FlowingData all about ? In Nathan's words:

FlowingData explores how designers, statisticians, and computer scientists are using data to understand ourselves better - mainly through data visualization. Money spent, reps at the gym, time you waste, and personal information you enter online are all forms of data. How can we understand these data flows? Data visualization lets non-experts make sense of it all.

The site is an excellent pointer into the world of statistical data visualization. Nathan has also done some high quality visualization work of his own. Below is an image from his visualization Watching the Growth of Walmart Across America. Check out FlowingData if you haven't already !
