For reasons of perpetual stickyiness ... I am posting about Many Eyes.

Stickyness, for those that are not aware of the expression, is what web developers refer to when a website keeps its visitors on a page for longer, or keeps them coming back. Many Eyes has had me back a number of times to delve into their data sets, and look through the many variations of data visualisation that they have on display.

I love that the developers built this tool not only 'to enable a new social kind of data analysis' ... but 'to encourage sharing and conversation around visualizations' ... to start conversations, to encourage stories and debate. Principles I heartily endorse.
