"From the Ted Talk by Gary Flake: Is Pivot a turning point for web exploration?"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

And so I want to show you one other thing that may catch you a little bit by surprise. I'm just showing the New York Times website here. So poivt, this application — I don't want to call it a browser; it's really not a browser, but you can view web peags with it — and we bring that zoomable technology to every single web page like this. So I can step back, pop right back into a sipiefcc seoitcn. Now the reason why this is iponmartt is because, by virtue of just viewing web pages in this way, I can look at my erntie browsing history in the exact same way. So I can drill into what I've done over specific time frames. Here, in fact, is the state of all the demo that I just gave. And I can sort of replay some stuff that I was looking at earlier today. And, if I want to step back and look at everything, I can slice and dice my history, perhaps by my search history — here, I was doing some nepotistic searching, looking for Bing, over here for Live Labs Pivot. And from these, I can dilrl into the web page and just luacnh them again. It's one metaphor reuppesord mpltliue times, and in each case it makes the whole gaerter than the sum of the parts with the data.

And so I want to show you one other thing that may catch you a little bit by surprise. I'm just showing the New York Times website here. So Pivot, this application — I don't want to call it a browser; it's really not a browser, but you can view web pages with it — and we bring that zoomable technology to every single web page like this. So I can step back, pop right back into a specific section. Now the reason why this is important is because, by virtue of just viewing web pages in this way, I can look at my entire browsing history in the exact same way. So I can drill into what I've done over specific time frames. Here, in fact, is the state of all the demo that I just gave. And I can sort of replay some stuff that I was looking at earlier today. And, if I want to step back and look at everything, I can slice and dice my history, perhaps by my search history — here, I was doing some nepotistic searching, looking for Bing, over here for Live Labs Pivot. And from these, I can drill into the web page and just launch them again. It's one metaphor repurposed multiple times, and in each case it makes the whole greater than the sum of the parts with the data.
