Social Networks meet Business Intelligence

What's new in answering tough questions?

There is an old adage that 'many hands make light work'. It appears that IBM has turned that around to be 'Many eyes make light work'. There is an interesting site that allows users to post data, create visualizations and allow others to post and discuss the insights. In the 'about' section it is described as follows:

Many Eyes is a bet on the power of human visual intelligence to find
patterns. Our goal is to "democratize" visualization and to enable a new social
kind of data analysis.
