Pivot, from Microsoft Live Labs makes it easier to interact with massive amounts of data in ways that are powerful, informative, and fun. The Pivot team tried to step back and design an interaction model that accommodates the complexity and scale of information rather than the traditional structure of the Web. As a data junkie myself I think it is very cool.
The tool was released to the public earlier this month in conjunction with a demonstration given at the TED conference in Long Beach, CA.
