"Many Eyes" data visualizations

This service from IBM allows anyone to use current datasets or upload new ones and create interesting visualizations. One featured example is a Proto-/Indo-European language tree. Cf. Google GapMinder and Swivel. I think the site's been slashdotted though (i.e., 3/6/07), since I can't seem to view anything.; On 3/13/07 Eric Lease Morgan cited a MARC record tag cloud he created with a set of 14,000 bibliographic records of new books, "but most of the content ... is administrative and does not lend itself [to] discovery".
