ping (visualization)

Popping up to note that from Rod Page's post on the recent Nascent meeting it appears that visualization is a hot topic. If you aren't following Moritz Stefaner's well formed data blog, and you are interested in visualization, then you are really missing out. His latest post brings up all sorts of possibilities for phylogenetic or taxonomic implementations. For kids or students, why not print up a collectible card game <cough>was a long time ago</cough> with a biodiversity theme, embed interesting data in the cards, and marvel as phylogenetic relationships (or ecological etc.) appear when the cards are placed on that ridiculously cool table.
