Fernanda Viégas and Martin Wattenberg Start a New Company: Flowing Media

This just in: Fernanda Viégas and Martin Wattenberg, two of the biggest rock stars in the world of data visualization (their long list of accomplishments includes Many Eyes and the Baby Name Voyager), have left IBM to form their own company, Flowing Media, headquartered in Cambridge, MA. As they wrote me, “if you know of anyone who has interesting data and would like help bringing it to life, spread the word.”

I am very excited for them, and am eagerly anticipating the work they will produce as free agents.
