A few sites of note I recently found while surfing:
1. FlowingData is a well-designed and -organized online locale which helps readers
...explore how designers, statisticians, and computer scientists are using data to understand ourselves better—mainly through data visualization.

Data visualization lets non-experts make sense of it all.
A few entries I like:
2. The Addictionary is a social word site. Users make up words, create definitions for made-up words, vote on other users' humorous wordy concoctions, and connect to others who enjoy doing the same. From their "About Us" page:
If you add a word or definition to the site, drop a comment here. I'll post a link to it so other readers can check it out.
* A video of the entire factory process would be even more enlightening!
