Who is interested in census data besides the government? The Yuppie Locator on Townme, that's who (and as a result, me).

The Yuppie Locator compiles data about yuppies, baby mamas, baby daddies, cougars, and more. It shows a heat map of the most concentrated collections of the certain groups for your viewing please (and information, if you're in the market for a sugar daddy).

Implications - As a result of the vast amount of information available on the Internet, the importance of data visualization has risen immensely. Websites that curate content based on consumer interests are poised for success as a result of this. There is a tremendous amount of opportunity with the online curation space.
