Josh Budich has created the website My Star Wars Collection to share his personal collection of over 600 Star Wars figures. He has created a pixel image of each figure in his collection. Moving you mouse over the image brings up the name of the character, and clicking brings up a photo of the figure still in its packaging. The are a number of ways to narrow down the assortment by figure series, movie the character appeared in or year the figure was released.
Thanks Torquil for sending this one in.
The above picture contains about 1,300 colors and the names for them that Turkers gave. Each is printed in its color and positioned on a color wheel. Just looking around, there sure seem to be different regions for different names. But there are also rich sets of modifiers (”light”, “dark”, “sea”), multiword names (”army green”), and fun obscure ones (”cerulean”).They also created a Color Label Explorer tool to only show those color names that match your search term, but still keep them in place on the color wheel graphic.

Design Journal is the magazine for members of The Society of News Design (SND). The Editor, Jonathon Berlin, approached me a while back for a quick interview to include in an upcoming issue. The interview was just published in the Winter 2008 issue (#105), which has a whole theme about data and graphics.
Unfortunately, the magazine is for members of SND only. However...
...Jonathon also published most of the interview on the SND Update blog, so you can read the interview online.
Jonathon, thank you very much for the visibility and the press!
