I just started playing around with swivel this week. For the uninitiated, swivel is to data what youtube is to video. Its still in preview mode so the number of users and the volume of data is limited.

What swivel allows you to do is upload data into an account for your own use and for the use of other swivel users. Data can be graphed and compared and the results stored away for others to observe.

Say your not satisfied with apples to oranges comparisons. You can compare apples to American Girl purchases in rural Georgia (okay I made that up). As more users emerge and as more data is uploaded the possibilities are endless. Of course the possibilities for statistical abuse are just as vast...
