O'Reilly's recent publication Beautiful Data has a chapter by Jeff Jonas which is enough reason in itself for me to recommend it. The chapter, Data Finds Data, is also available as a PDF download.
I met Jeff a couple of year ago at an ETech conference, and he is easily one of the smartest people I have ever met who is thinking about data.
