> Hi friends,
> We're pleased to announce the launch of DataBasic.io - a suite of simple
> web-based tools and hands-on activities that help you get started learning
> to work with data. The tools are geared towards journalists, non-profits,
> activist groups and students. Rather than just building data tools to make
> a pretty charts, we've designed these with learners in mind and we made
> them fun!
> * WTFcsv gives you a quick overview of a CSV to help you learn how to
> start asking questions with data
> * WordCounter shows you the most common words and phrases in a text
> document to help you think about text as data
> * SameDiff compares two documents to help you learn how to tell stories
> about differences
> Each tool has a short video introducing it, and a downloadable activity
> guide so you can facilitate the hands-on activities we have designed for
> each tool. They're available in Spanish and English, and accessible to
> those that use screen-reading software to use the web.
> Please try them out, spread the word, and let us know how it goes.
