Still no progress on open data visualization

I wrote a year ago that visualization services are stagnating. Other than yesterday’s announcements of Wolfram Alpha and public data in Google search, has there been any progress on online analytics and data visualization?

No.

Swivel has completely refocused on business services, but business.swivel.com is still in beta. A new competitor, Good Data, has appeared, but has nothing new to offer. Many Eyes is now powering visualizations for the New York Times, but there have been no significant new capabilities added to the service.

Currently my hopes are pinned on Wolfram Alpha. What will the next year bring?
