Hi
i totally agree on the use of D3.js.
What about Linked Data Api adoption?
I am currentlly experimenting it in my spare time for provide a visualizer
over Elda (i've started some months ago for a project that has an
unfortunate end, so i'm trying to proceed with the development on  it by
myself when i find a couple of spare time):
http://www.epimorphics.com/web/tools/elda.html
I really think it could be very usefule to have a visualizer over a Linked
Data Api browser.
