Visualization – Where all the Cool Data Hangs Out

One of the things that I struggle with is convincing users that they don’t just want to see a list.  We’ve trained them to not believe that (nearly all useful data has been presented as lists for decades).  I posted on that here a few weeks ago.

I showed a couple people yesterday some of the cool things that can be achieved if you use some of the technologies that are out there, primarily Silverlight and DeepZoom.

There is a brief but pointed commentary from one of the folks involved in MIX – a conference that I’m hoping to attend next year.  If you’re interested, be sure to check out the Descry project for some samples.
