WebNumbr - Graph anything on the web

*

Excerpt

Graphs are awesome. Everyone can find graphs for stocks and gas prices, and maybe even Amazon prices if you're good. But how about your twitter list counts, P1 bug reports, server connection count, or flickr pictures per millisecond?

Come see a cool tool that will revolutionize your graphing life.

Description

Lots of numbers are already graphed beautifully (stock prices, temperatures, gas prices, etc) but there are still many that aren’t. I’m going to show a very simple way to graph any number from any site over time.

This talk will simply showcase webnumbr.com, discuss the technical details behind it, and hack together some neat graphs.

A 5 minute lightning talk was given at Super Happy Dev House about this site: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sw1j0XNhJHk
