One of the great joys of the computer age is that we can slice and dice digital information and try to make new sense of it. It doesn’t decay, and the results come quickly. The recently unveiled Many Eyes is one such example, a heavy duty entry into the field of networked data analysis.

If you want a little Friday fun with politics (and, really, who doesn’t?), try Google’s new In Quotes service, a lightweight offering that lets you see what major US political figures say about various topics, and then spin for more quotes and comparisons.
