Two interesting online tools

  • WikiMindMap creates mindmaps of the links in Wikipedia pages.  Here, for instance, is how it represents the entry for Charles Dickens. (Thanks, Tom!)
  • ZIPskinny pulls census data on a zipcode-by-zipcode basis.  Here’re the results for my ZIP code; while the household income numbers are startling, what’s really interesting–for a ZIP code that enfolds (though doesn’t quite include) a university–are the numbers about educational achievement. Of people over 25, slightly more residents graduates never made it to high school than graduated from college.  (Thanks, Mom!)
