... and ugly. but fairly powerful, in terms of filter application. Far better than your standard search interface.

I've gotta say i was expecting something like RealTree, the quantitative analysis software Gibson talks about in Virtual Light, but Honeycomb is interesting, all the same.

This really, really works well for people who are visually oriented. For the rest of us, it's a morass of randomly-presented almost-information. Requiring the user to scrub the window (a pop up! Horrors!) with the mouse before revealing any actual data is wrong, wrong, wrong.

This thread is closed to new comments. Thanks to everyone who responded.
