theinfo.org – for people who love large data sets

Filed under: Data Collection, Datamining, Infrastructure — chucklam @ 4:50 pm

Aaron Swartz just announced a new Web site (theinfo.org) he created for people who love large data sets, “the scrapers and crawlers who collect them, the academics and geeks who process them, the designers and artists who visualize them. It’s a place where they can exchange tips and tricks, develop and share tools together, and begin to integrate their particular projects.”

The site is very spartan right now, but it can certainly become very interesting if it attracts the right contributors. I hope he succeeds in building a community around it.
