You probably already know “Kovner” (the man with no first first name). Kovner co-presented at a number of TCC sessions with me, and is one of the scary-smart young guns at Tableau – he’s also the guy who created the Tables in the East game.
Now he’s gone off and created TabChat, a proof of concept that allows two or more users to collaboratively explore, filter, and chat about a viz being displayed. It’s pretty self-explanatory, but you can click “How to use this” if you get lost.

So, jump out here, play with TabChat, then bookmark Kovner’s blog and return often.
