Fellow Librarians, Let’s Get on This Now!

Microsoft presents Pivot.  It’s a completely new way of viewing information.  You really have to read this.

This could be a total paradigm shift in the way people, especially librarians, navigate the information on the web.  You can visualize information and see patterns that don’t normally materialize except by seeing it like this.  Imagine the boon to researching and reference provided by this technology.  It’s still fairly raw, and I have not tried it out myself because I’m cheap and don’t have a capable Windows computer (I run Linux).
