I just sat through Gary Flake’s session on Microsoft Pivot – a new project from Live Labs that frankly, blew me away. I sort of thought I knew what was coming but I didn’t and the sooner the video of his session is up the better – it’s one of those things you need to see. Here’s what the website says of Pivot
Pivot is an application intended to make it easier to view and interact with massive amounts of data in ways that are powerful, informative, and fun. It enables the visualization of trends in related information using our own Seadragon technology. Pivot is currently available by invitation only to a small technical audience but you can learn more by visiting our website.
It’s an invite only trial for the moment so head over to www.getpivot.com to sign yourself up.
[update] I meant to mention that during the session I was thinking how cool it would be to hook Pivot up to some of the data in our Dallas services. Huge potential here me thinks…
