Time Brush is a good visual for selecting date ranges but for streaming data it should be possible to set a time window (e.g. last hour, 24 hours, day, week, etc) for the initial display that does not necessary filter the data for other visuals. This could apply to other time series graphs as well. Intuitively this is Visual Filter type functionality but currently it is not possible to use that for the following reasons:

a) Time Brush visual does not support Visual Filters, and
b) even if it did, there is currently no functionality to allow a filter on relative time to be defined
