Visualization, again

Visualization of data seems to be the new new wave of BI. Already mentioned IBM's offering a few months ago, but are quite a few other players in this space, startups with interesting products, such as TableauDesktop, Omniscope, and even SAP has a product (Xcelsius), or research institutions (such as Stanford with Protovis).

What can I say: Tufte meets SQL. And perhaps Processing should get in the game - surprised I haven't seen any rich visualization libraries for it - yet.
