IBM’s many eyes product is pretty cool – its a way to visualize information and comes with a number of tools you can used for textual and more structured information.
Here’s many eyes run against a wikipedia article that describes MIKE2.0:
This is just one view (a wordle) but many eyes give you many ways to visualize the data.
And to see something really interesting, check it out against some of the latest political dialogue.
But many eyes is far from a toy. There’s some real power in being able to connect semantics to analytics. My favorite is from another technology – GapMinder: http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/hans_rosling_shows_the_best_stats_you_ve_ever_seen.html
Have fun with many eyes for now but watch this space – I think we’ll be see it grow a lot more!
