More on data

If you're tired of others interpreting data for you, and if you want to do your own analysis and thinking about data, keep an eye on Swivel (reference thanks to Andrew Gelman's Statistical Modeling, Causal Inference, and Social Science). It's a bit too early to tell how good it will become compared to more traditional data sources; it does appear to give us easier opportunities to share our own data and to analyze the data others provide. Of course, we still have to understand, vet, and interpret the data well.
