Author:Alec Perkins
Description: "When asked 'pick a number from 1 to 10,' people tend to pick certain numbers more than others, in particular 7 and 4 over the extremes...." Participate by choosing your own number; see bar graphs and line plots of data submitted thus far according to country of origin, as well as sensitivities revealed by slight variations in wording ("Pick a number...." vs. "Pick a random number....") and user interface (text input vs. slider vs. lists). Through his API, Perkins also provides access to the raw, unprocessed vote data in JSON-formatted batches.
