Visualization of Data

I was once affectionately known, not that long ago, as “Chart Girl” for my affinity for the visual representation of data. I like charts (excel is my friend) and making data pretty.

So imagine how happy I was to read in Online Fandom today about the new site, Many Eyes. You can take any text or data file and make it into a tag cloud, bubble chart, pie chart, etc. Here is one of my favs, a tag cloud of the Gonzales trial. His fav phrase “I don’t recall” is quite large, eh?
