  • This looks incredible...

    Wow. This looks like it can (and, hopefully, will) change how data is accessed, viewed, and interpreted. It means you can waste less time learning the data and more time figuring out how to apply it to everyday life.

    I wish I could play with this already. There's so much potential for this. Some of the things that come to mind are:

    - Athletic Performance
    - Nutrition
    - All sorts of scientific research
    - Quantity of roaches in the Mesozoic Era vs. roaches today
    - Market trends

    Et cetera...

    Seriously, this looks amazing. I'm going to look for stock RIGHT NOW.

    PS: Did I mention: First!! (Sorry, I'm 20. I can still do that...)
