FlowingData
FlowingData explores how statisticians, designers, data scientists, and others use analysis, visualization, and exploration to understand data and ourselves.

As for me, I’m Nathan Yau and I have a PhD in statistics from UCLA. My dissertation was on personal data collection and how we can use visualization in an everyday context. That expands to more general types of data, visualization and design for a growing audience.

Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program has rejected 99 percent of applicants.
Under the program’s rules, borrowers can become eligible for forgiveness if they make 120 on-time monthly payments on their federal student loans while working full time in public service. This all sounds simple enough. But as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau reported last year, many people have gotten tripped up on PSLF’s bureaucratic details, in part because student loan servicers have often done a poor job helping them navigate it. They may end up enrolled in the wrong kind of repayment plan (borrowers essentially need to be sign up for income-based repayment) or may not have the right kind of debts (only student loans made directly by the federal government can be discharged; older loans that were issued by private banks with federal backing aren’t eligible). As a result, some borrowers spend years making payments on their debts thinking they’re making progress toward getting them discharged, when in fact they’re not.

I'm Not Here to Make Friends: The Rise and Fall of the Supercut Video | WIRED
And the form itself may be finding its way to a new generation. Saslaw notes that, in recent years, she’s seen a burst of quick, fan-created mini-montages—first on Vine, and then later Instagram. “It’s not quite cultural criticism,” she says, “but they’re so elaborate, because they’re all done on phones. They’re not super-elevated the way our supercuts were, but there is a supercutty component of it: It’s the same formula, and with the same appreciation, but with all of these crazy effects.”

60 minutes proving De La Soul is one of hip-hop’s greats—but its legacy is in danger
Thanks to a messy thicket of legal entanglements involving sample rights and intellectual property clearance questions, nothing before the band’s 2004 release The Grind Date and the 2016 Kickstarter-funded ...And The Anonymous Nobody are available on Spotify or other streaming sites. It’s not for lack of trying; the group has been fighting lawyers, lawsuits, and former label Warner Bros. for years to try and clear the way to post its music on digital platforms, to no avail.
