The NYTimes has partnered with Many Eyes to create the NYTimes Visualization Lab [nytimes.com]. This Many Eyes version was specifically designed for the NYTimes, to allow newspaper readers 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 are currently only 10 data sets available, but they range from Sarah Palin Speech at RNC to Party Affiliation By Religious Tradition.

I think the NYTimes is just getting it. They are starting to release their data in a consumable fashion thanks to the data API they unveiled a few weeks back, and now they are letting users play with the data visually.

I agree. I'm really glad to see the NYTimes continuing to push data visualization. They've done a fantastic job in the past, printing very large information-rich graphics in the paper. I like their Enron email graph.

It is great to see data visualization being featured in, and with, a mass-medium like the NYTimes indeed. Do you think it will serve an 'new' audience, or will the majority of users be Many Eyes users anyway?
