Launching @BestOfData

Since starting HallwayMathlete, many of my friends started having an interest in data visualization and all around data journalism. They have asked for suggestions on other websites to get top quality stories told through data analysis. The easiest answer is: FiveThirtyEight. However, there are many smaller blogs that turn out fantastic quality material, but in low volume. These smaller websites tend not to have Twitters, Facebook Pages, or other venues for fans to follow their most recent work.

For this reason, I am launching @BestOfData. Best of Data is an aggregation of the best smaller data journalism blogs on the web. Currently, Best of Data automatically pulls from a list of my favorite blogs and I will manual add other articles I find interesting.

The complete list of website automatically populating @BestOfData:
FlowingData.com
HowMuch.net
RandalOlson.com/Blog
Priceonomics.com
InformationIsBeautiful.net
ToddwSchneider.com
Insidesamegrain.com

Any websites you think I should add to this list? Please add them in the comments.

If you are not a Twitter user (you should really have a Twitter), the list of articles can be found at BestOfData.org.
