Discuss graphs in groups

Swivel, well known for giving the possibility to visualize and comment data, has introduced Swivel Business some weeks ago. Swivel Business adds more of Web 2.0 and lets companies and offices visualize their data in closed user groups. Every member can comment (parts of) the graphs and get feedback from other members. To discuss with others is perhaps the best way to a better understanding of what a graph means.

This interactivity could be used inside Statistical Offices. These offices could also organize groups with external members, for instance with schools. Learning to interprete data and gaining statistical literacy in such a way is quite attractive and also a good opportunity for statistical offices to stay in contact with users.
To get into Swivel Business is not very easy (for the moment) as you have to wait for a telephone call from Swivel before getting a password.
