Looking for data? Try (and link to) this

A recent post in the Official Google Blog really caught my eye. Now it's possible to not only find public data and view it in a chart, but now you can interact with it, adding other data for comparison, for example. Even better, you can link to your chart!

Take a look at the video at the end of that blog post and then try it yourself. Here is one that I made that compares the unemployment rate in PA with that in Allegheny County (Pittsburgh) and Philadelphia.

Another great way for kids to create non-powerpoint presentations.
