Many Eyes on Rails

The word’s out: Many Eyes (and Visualization Lab) are now Ruby on Rails applications. ┬áThat’s something I’m awfully happy about.

And now, back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Many Eyes for the New York Times

The Visual Communication Lab just launched a version of Many Eyes for the New York Times. We’re extremely excited about it.

You can go play at (They’ve rebranded it as “Visualization Lab.”) The Times has a nice blog post about it, too.

Like Many Eyes, you can embed live visualizations. In the spirit of the upcoming election (go vote!), here’s a wordle of Obama’s nomination acceptance speech.

Check it out! And don’t forget to read the credits.

Dead Air, Live

Thanks to Andrew Sempere, I had the chance to participate in the Artistic Mediums in Pontiac, MI. Aside from DJing at the opening party, I also had a piece there called Dead Air, Live.

Dead Air, Live

In short, it’s a self-sampling radio. Recording to come.

Many Eyes

Many Eyes is a public website for collective visualization and analysis. It’s my first really sizeable project at IBM, and it’s the first really public creation from our group, the Visual Communication Lab.
