So, Data.gov is finally open and serving up links to data. I haven’t had a chance to dig in, yet, but since 3 of my favorite blogs (FlowingData, ProgrammableWeb, and DataVisualization) covered it, I thought I should at least mention it here.
P.S. Although not explicitly tied to data.gov, keep in mind the upcoming OECD Seminar on Innovative Approaches to Turn Statistics into Knowledge in DC July 15th and 16th. Amanda Cox from NYT is scheduled to attend. See accolades from Tufte himself. Woohoo.
