Some blog visalization examples here
(I particularly like the text button labeled "wtf?")
DiceLaRed (in Spanish)
About, With, and For reports at Peter Merholz's weblog
(esp. Dale Wunderlich's project)
And IBM's Social Computing Group has some interesting apps. History
Flow, for example, graphically tracks contributions to collaboratively
authored documents over time.
Social Computing Group History Flow Project:
Other links of their Projects page (babble, loops, and worldjam) offer
some interesting possibilities.
Social Computing Projects:
Note that most of these don't get at the scalability issue in the way
that some people would like. I guess it might come down to a better
definition of what we're talking about when we talk about infoviz.
Personally, I see the most potential in dealing with datasets at the
relatively small size--100K or less, even 1k. There are, obviously, an
immense number of things for which million-plus datasets are required,
and scalability will be an issue. But my *current* work (and for the
foreseeable future--the next 2 - 3 years) needs better tools for
visualizing datasets in the 100k or less range.
Of course, I'm not a market. Hell, I'm hardly a datapoint.
