- two tools demonstrated some form of 3d visualization (I know there
were at least two as that each project was doing their own SWT bindings
to OpenGL came up as a topic :-) taking a high level view. For instance
a 3d graph of events vs process over time.
- tptp demonstrated (the 10 minute unintended demo was far more useful
than the slides) zomming in/out using drag select to give that
high-level view and then zoom in
