Visual.ly Launched Today…

…and all I got was this stupid avatar.

All joking aside, I think Visual.ly has a lot of potential. If you know me – you know I love data visualizations. I’m always interested in seeing the visual notes of my pals Jonny Goldstein and Austin Kleon and, of course, the wicked visualizations of design guru JESS3. The first, and currently only available “lab” available is a Twitter Visualizer. This lab polls your Twitter data and creates a visualization of your ‘personality’ on Twitter, ratios of follower to followers, etc. Note: it may take a bit to populate if you have a lot of tweets, followers, etc so be patient. See my results below.

I’m definitely looking forward to seeing how you’ll be able to port data into various ‘labs’ and what other API’s they’ll be interacting with. Two tentative thumbs up for visual.ly, but be warned – my expectations are high going forward.
