OpenRefine for cleaning data

On the “Introduction to Data Science” discussion forum, somebody mentioned GoogleRefine, now called OpenRefine. It’s a free desktop application to help clean up data; it also works with Freebase. I have only played around with OpenRefine a little but some might find this a better way to clean data than with Excel. More tools in the toolbox can’t hurt.
