Regular readers will know I have a bit of a thing for data visualizations at the moment. One of the things I like about them is that they bring life to things that were previously hard or impossible to envisage. Here's another couple of great ones from the ever-fascinating Flowing Data.

And then I saw that the New York Times have created a map showing live twitter chatter during the Super Bowl, visualizing the frequency and location of commonly used words in Super Bowl related tweets. Interestingly, one of the tabs allows you to watch tweeting about the ads along the timeline of the game. Can't help but feel that we're only just at the beginning of some really interesting applications of this kind of stuff. Enjoy.
