When you know you are a data geek
When the release of a massive data set makes you excited. What secrets will it hold? What useful lessons can you learn? What random hidden detail or fact can you dig up that serve no function other than to tease and torture a friend?
Sometimes it is the release of a new Census report. Sometimes it is the release of new voter registration data. Sometimes it is the quarterly lobbying report. Sometimes it is the release of the budget. Today it is campaign finance reports! Woo-hoo!
