Go to a web site, e.g. National Center for Health Statistics (http://www.cdc.gov/nchs) or others listed on the Quality Repositories page: http://www.cs.umd.edu/class/spring2006/cmsc838s/data_repositories/repository_home.html and look around at their many data sets to find one that interests you. Download the data and use ManyEyes http://services.alphaworks.ibm.com/manyeyes/app to make three useful informative visual displays. For each one you should include a provocative headline that tells a story. Do your best to make the information stand out clearly by choosing appropriate comments, labels, legends, colors, etc. Add a small comment with your headline to tell the story (Include your name). Add your name, followed by the headlines as three URLs to the wiki.
