Here’s a great example of how one company takes Big Data and makes it fun.  Help is a drug company that strives to simplify the pharmaceutical choices for customers.  Their website now features a map highlighting sales data from Target and Walgreens called “What’s wrong U.S.?”.  A bar chart for each state shows how many people are buying products for particular ailments versus the national average; you can also click on the state and get region by region details.  For example, Central Texas, home to our home, Austin, TX has a higher than average number of blisters.  Maybe it’s all the running and biking we do!
