Visually navigating information with Grokker

My roommate told me about a new search service calle Grokker that allows you to visually browse the information. I didn’t quite understand what he meant when he was telling me about it but I checked it out and it’s actually really cool. It’s basically a search engine that automatically categorizes information in groups and allows you to visually navigate the “map.” I could see something like this being really useful for research. It’s always interesting to see new ways that people are visualizing data. I believe over the next 10 years visualization will be some of the biggest challenges that we will face in the computing and scientific communities.
