PIRatE Lab's insight:
An extreme example to be sure, but this is a cautionary tale about the importance of managing your digital identity and your privacy online.  Thankfully, most of us do not need to worry about such threats, but all of us should be giving ample attention to how easy it is to find out a myriad of details about us from our digital trail.

School district spending, against national average

FlowingData
PIRatE Lab's insight:
This is interesting.  To me the biggest standouts on this figure are the very wide range (from some of the best to the absolute worst in the nation) of per pupil spending for California.  Texas has a range sort of close to us, but is not as bad as the Golden State.  Lots of the variation seems to come from smaller states, but if we look at what appears to the be best, large population state we see that New York has an almost similar magnitude range, but which is all shifted into higher per pupil spending.

How people read books

How people read books | Capstone: An ESRM Coda | Scoop.it
Jellybooks is an analytics company that evaluates how people read book, in a similar fashion in how a company like Netflix evaluates how customers watch shows.

Here is how it works: the company gives free e-books to a group of readers, often before publication. Rather than asking readers to write a review, it tells them to click on a link embedded in the e-book that will upload all the information that the device has recorded. The information shows Jellybooks when people read and for how long, how far they get in a book and how quickly they read, among other details
The charts above show what percentage of readers finish chapters of books, with chapters on the x-axis. There’s a quick drop-off for the beginning parts of the book, but it’s like once people reach a certain point, they’re like, well, might as well finish it.

Although I suspect there’s some averaging or smoothing. After the drop, it looks really flat. Or is reading behavior really that predictable?
