Generate excellent test data quickly and cheaply
Website: Fake Name Generator
When I saw this site mentioned on BoingBoing, I probably did not have the same initial reaction as most of its readers, who are usually looking for a convenient way to feed gibberish to the countless websites that require some sort of registration. When I saw the Fake Name Generator, I immediately saw a handy way to generate plausible test data for database applications. From the site's main page, you can pull off fake people one at a time for free, or you can buy addresses in bulk for as little as one twentieth of a penny each. Even the credit card numbers it generates pass validation. Since 2000 plausible addresses can be had for only a buck, this service is a compelling alternative to coding your own data generator.
