How many different user interfaces can you create for something completely banal? Read 1,000 Screens, 1,000 Dreams over on World Famous Design Junkies to see how something as simple and commonplace as scorekeeping for bowling can be complexified endlessly. Dozens of screenshots show the variations that can occur when you need to record a few columns and rows of numbers. What if this data was more complex?

Posts like this make me think that we’re only scratching the surface for Big Data visualization. How many ways can you envision a social network such as a series of cell phone calls? How soon before we transcend the boring lines-and-icons approach?
