VISUALIZATION
The chapter is VERY informative.
I find all the aspects to take into account when conceptualizing your visualization interesting, especially human capability of processing things differently, and how the success of your visualization mostly depends upon your capability to portray your dataset in a manner that is effectively perceivable / understandable to everyone / the targeted audience. 
"The reason is once again the limited capacity of human working memory" :)
The boundaries are what was for me the most interesting, all though they seem obvious when mentioned; there are a lot of aspects to take into account. – Color blindness is one that struck me as obvious, but at the same time I would’ve neglected to think about it.
POLARIS
It seems like Polaris is a tool that has many functionalities, and was developed for the explorative analysis of multi-dimentional databases, but both the article and their website speak of improvements to be made to this platform, and my question is whether they ever did...
Did they ever expand and improve Polaris' functionality? On the website it suggests to use Tableau's? The article speaks of introducing a novel version of Polaris and describe its functionality as being limited to that of other platforms. This to me just seems sensless if no upgrade of the software was ever done?
