MeFi stream graphs updated

A few years back I posted some stream graph visualizations of MeFi user activity. cortex pointed out that these had fallen off of the web at some point, so I took the opportunity to update the images through 2011. [more inside]

xkcd's internet map tool implemented. Can we have?

Someone went and implemented xkcd's internet map - it generates pictures like this. Matt, would you be willing to dump a couple days worth of access_log IPs into this tool?

Close your eyes and visualize...

Community-based interactive pony request: With all our new doodads, favorites, flags, and feeds Metafilter is crying out for some cool ways of visualizing our community and content, ala dig labs. The only thing I have seen along these lines is this contact map made with ManyEyes. Some potential ideas for neat visualizations inside, but does anyone have the skills/interest to put something snazzy together?

Many Eyes?

What on earth is this?

MetaFilter Contacts Map

I used IBM's Many Eyes data visualization site [discussed] to create a network map of my MetaFilter contacts and my contacts' contacts. It got to be pretty big, so I thought I'd post it here.

Tame the Tags Blob!

The Front Page Posting page shows a big blob listing ALL the tags I have used on previous posts. Particularly big because I have made 199 posts on at least 175 different topics, including high-tech band-aids (an early NewsFilter with 2 now-dead links), a-list blogs, MetaFilter-related stuff before MetaTalk existed (this post features jessamyn making a suggestion to create something like MetaTalk) Interpol, Steely Dan, ICANN, and Fat People (without a trainwreck in the comments!)... and that was all in my first month participating here. Anyway, that tag blob, as it now exists, does me no benefit and just blocks the way to the "Preview" button. Can we have options to show NO tags or most used tags or tags used more than once ple-e-e-eze?

Here is the site. Some results are definitely interesting though. I wish you could click on a node and see its address.

Imagine if MeFi were ONLY links

Nothing but links... [+]

Charts become a compelling possibility

As MeFi grows, charts become a compelling possibility. I think it would be interesting to graphically chart (is that redundant?) MeFi posts on the basis of number of responses, keywords, and dates. It might be instructive/interesting to see what subjects touch nerves, and whether an idea that hits a sensitive spot in 2000 has the same effect in 2005 (and so on).

Visualizing most popular tags

Right now, the top-150 tag page seems like sort of a novelty. "Art", "music" and "flash" are going to be huge, but the vast majority of tags seem to get shunted into the lower mid-range such that there's not a lot of perceived difference tag-to-tag or day-to-day. Over time, I'd imagine we'd see the same sort of homogeneity that characterizes the Flickr tag sizes.

The idea is to add some more dimension to the information display, showing not only popularity, but time-based "freshness" of tags and ordering them alphabetically rather than hierarchically for easier browsing ala the full tags listing. If time could be added as an organizational principle, people who aren't obsessive readers of mefi could use the top-150 page as a viable entry point to the site for finding new posts of interest.

Quick-and-dirty HTML example here. (or screenshot).

A picture of weblogs

A picture of weblogs shows a cool gridded pattern of many weblogs and the incoming, outgoing, and shared links. Not all blogs listed (but you can add yours, or request that it be taken off). A cool representation of the blogging community. (via daypop top40)

Visual help in spotting popular threads

A suggestion for the site: Visual help in spotting the most popular threads on MetaFilter.
