YouTube for Data

This is for all the database purists out there, what's most important? Forget the implemention, the operating system, the transactions per second. Its the data!

Swivel.com is a website where you can browse or upload data sets. For better or worse you can also compare them.

Some of the comparisons make sense, Per Capita Income vs Unleaded Regular Gas Price 1970-present. There are some junk data sets like "Travis Beer to Hate Chart - The more he drinks, the more he hates", and the veracity of the data isn't guaranteed, but its still interesting to see what's out there. Kinda makes me wish I was an economist, I'm sure there are some interesting correlations to be discovered and explained.

As the site says "May your love for data guide you" … !
