James, this looks slick! I'm looking forward to working on it.

Ah, fancy transitions :-)

Ideally, it'd be nice if we could update the visualizations in real-time (i.e., on edit), but if not, the user can use the "Apply" button to make things happen. (it'd also be good if we could animate the visualization changes)

This is one of the lovely features of the Framework: We should be able to easily set it up such that the views automatically update when the data changes (i.e. without having to click Apply). In fact, this is one of the features we want this demo to illustrate!

Why has the title changed? Is this because the user has edited the existing data set? Or is this in the case of the user creating their own data set?

James, this looks really great. We should be able to break this down into chunks of work, and as well we can implement functionality incrementally, possibly allowing us to have "a" demo available and useful before it has all of these features.

Maybe tomorrow (Thursday) after you get in, we can sit down and start to task this out.
