What’s that ? Explanations on NY Times:
” With Visualization Lab, NYTimes.com users will be able to visualize and comment on information and data sets presented by Times editors, share those visualizations with others and create topic hubs where people can discuss specific subjects. There is also a separate site, Many Eyes, run by IBM Research at http://services.alphaworks.ibm.com/manyeyes/. Please feel free to participate and contribute in both places. “
Impressive: NY Times provides an “editorialized” or “processed” tool to a web community, in order to start a conversation to create value added.
It’s probably one new path for journalism: not diffusing a kind of absolute / static truth, but providing dynamic elements of analysis in which opinions can debate.
