Many Eyes

I had a chance to take another look at IBM's Many Eyes data visualization capability. Had tried it once before shortly after it came out. A nice idea, a social network for data visualization design. Lots of interesting viz design options that you can readily try with your own data. Very easy to use, I have tried it with a number of quick prototypes. Your data, though, becomes public. Others can comment on the design. I do wish there was a way to make your designs private while they are in draft, so you can show it to only a few others. Their blog shows some of the updates they have made, including extensive geographical capabilities. Interactive graphs can also now be embedded in your own web pages and blogs. No real comparison to interactive commercial viz packages like Spotfire or Tableau. Out of IBM Watson's Collaborative User Environment Group.
