Is Pivot a Turning Point for Web Exploration?

This video from TED features Gary Flake, a Technical Fellow at Microsoft and the founder and director of Live Labs, as he demos Pivot. Pivot is a new way to browse and arrange massive amounts of images and data online. Built on Seadragon technology, it enables zooms in and outs of web databases, and the discovery of patterns and links invisible in standard web browsing.

At the least, Pivot is an interesting way to visualize data. What do you think?
