In case you're really bored this day after Thanksgiving, try out a free online tool for posting and visualizing your own data sets. Many Eyes is IBM's experimental web site intended to help the public easily share, analyze and illustrate statistics. The data ranges widely in topic and seriousness. You'll find everything from football, song lyrics and restaurant ratings to homicide rates, layoffs and global oil consumption.
If you have information to share, just register as a Many Eyes member and upload your data in a tabular form. Once uploaded, your dataset can be "visualized" in one of several interactive formats, such as bar or pie charts, maps, scatterplots or word clouds. As an example, I posted recent California county poverty rates illustrated as a bar chart.
Speaking of word clouds, there's another free site that allows users to transform text into a visualization that displays the relative prominence of individual words. Like Many Eyes, Wordle contributions range from the silly to the serious. To create your "wordle," just paste the text into this box and click "Go". (No registration is necessary.) Check out this word cloud derived from the the Governor's 2009-2010 California Budget Summary.
