    The site relaunched yesterday. I didn't like the association with NYTimes.com and was hoping Silver would move it back to independence. The deal with ESPN apparently does just that.

    Looks quite a bit different from it's roots of 2008 and will take some getting used to. It now covers a gamut of subjects instead of just sports and politics.

    Mods, feel free to move this to D&D as it's likely some will take it that direction.

    Love the site.

    Nate Silver is awesome. Definitely some interesting things on there already.

    Silver has a remarkable ability when it comes to calling elections. Thanks for the heads up, A_3PO!

    The great thing about Silver is that he'd likely tell you that he doesn't and it's all in the data. It's his ability to read data that makes FiveThirtyEight awesome.

    I love this site. Been spending a lot of time reading articles. A lot of it is random but I just find it fascinating. Love the combination of story and statistics.

    will be interesting to see how their NCAA bracket fairs against a chalk bracket and a vegas odds bracket
