Nate Silver runs the incredible FiveThirtyEight blog, currently hosted by the New York Times. Recently, he collected data and ran an analysis on whether or not Hurricane Irene has received too much media attention. I took that data and created some simple plots, here.
Sorry about not including that content directly here; I’m still working on integrating ProtoVis and other goodies to my CMS.
If you have suggestions about the plots or data, let me know in the comments here!
