I used to be obsessed with data visualization. At the time, there weren't a lot of easily available tools, just processing and a few different open source projects such as Many Eyes and, one of my faves, Parallel Sets.

My day job dealt with massive amounts of data and a large C++ codebase. At night, I was getting a graduate degree in Software Engineering. One of my time hacks was to do independent study and make up classes that could help with my work so I ended up doing a lot of code analysis with different data visualization tools.
