I'm on the road in Texas right now, so I guess any story about interactive maps would pique my interest.
Tableau has released a cool new tool (it's FREE!) that allows you to create your own interactive data visualizations (for example the hurricane map at the top of this post --- see the interactive version here) to embed in a website or share with others.
Definitely worth a look for museum/designer type folks. So click over to the Tableau website to find out more.
