Hi Doug,

I'm interested in data viz and accessibility, too. One question I have 
about the concept of doing a best practices doc for data viz on the web 
is how we might bound such an endeavor. Since techniques and libraries 
for data viz are changing at a rapid pace, I think we would want to 
somehow limit to things that are best practices independent of the 
library used. Yet, I don't think we would want to try to write a spec 
for how to create good data viz that is only about design choices, as 
that would have little to do with the web per se, and there are tons of 
other resources for that. The accessibility angle is good. What else 
would fit the sweet spot of being web-appropriate and sufficiently 
library independent? Maybe . . .

- the characteristics of a good viz library

- connecting to data securely

- optimizing performance

- copyright issues

what else?

-Annette
