Explore your Twitter Block: Discover new people on your Twitter block by navigating through this animated three dimensional visualization of who follows whom.
here is what my twitter block looks like:
(the title is a joke... zoom into the picture. i'm just pointing out that ian twitters a lot, which i think is awesome).
anyway, so i thought that the twitter blocks was a pretty cool idea on how to explore and find new people. it doesn't work that great. we have a long way to go to make visualizing data useful and intuitive.
this is an interesting area, but i definitely need to learn more about it. here is one book that is pretty cool: Visualizing Data. here is a recent blog post from palantir tech.
we are definitely going to focus on this area a lot more in the coming months. stay tuned.
