Good reads from around the Web.
The World Cup kicked off this week and it’s clear to see that most peoples favorite to win is Brazil. Good to see that you folks stateside (oh and Argentina) think you have a chance, as one of the few nations voting for themselves as most likely to win :-) If it’s any consolation, it sure won’t be England either…..
As a Data Professional I’m fascinated by numbers and those of Social Media interactions that an event such as the world cup generates. There’s a brilliant info-graphic available on the KISSMetrics blog that you should look at.
