This post is a bit out of date now, Data and Visualization Blogs Worth Following is a post from last week on the same blog with an updated list

Yeah, but the new list doesn't have Andrew Gelman's Statistical Modeling, Causal Inference, and Social Science blog, so the old list is better.

Any collection of 'data-ish' blogs that does not include I Love Charts is taking itself too seriously.

In an election year, I'd expect to see Five Thirty Eight in there.

This from Chart Porn is good. Zoom in and out on the universe. Caution autoplaying music.

Nice find, thankyou.

Or if you're in a hurry, just read the blog that hosts the list, Flowing Data. Nathan Yau does an amazing job cherrypicking visualizations from other places.

I find the lack of Brent Spiner disturbing.

(Seriously, in general, I wonder why Spiner isn't better known outside of TNG--he's a good actor, has done tons of stage work, etc.)

I find it hard to believe that Information Is Beautiful isn't on this list. I'm definitely going to check these links out when I get home. :)

I came in here just to make the joke that Halloween Jack made.

Data Stories, a podcast about data visualization, was also recommended on Flowing Data a few days ago.
(I haven't listened to it.)
