graphing my friends' friendings

graphing my friends' friendings

Previous Entry Add to Memories Share this! Next Entry
I graphed the friends relationships among all my friends. These images are pretty big. Each friend of mine is an oval, and an arrow points to each person they friended. The more friends any two people have in common, the closer they should be, ideally.

All my friends - really big, don't look.360KB10341x9086
Philly and non-Philly friends only have nchanter in common, so I put her in both.

The graphs and stats were generated using springgraph. The lj data harvesting was done with a script I haven't yet released, but as far as I can tell the lj folks should consider it a well behaved bot (caching, and using fdata.bml instead of userinfo.bml).

  • Thoughts

    1. this is really cool!
    2. uh oh. wonder if it's time to bring up the subject of "graphing THAT list" again (since ectropy and I never did get around to doing that) - Ha!
    3. In the small version, it just looked like you spilled something on the page. :)
    4. Can I have one? :) (half kidding.)
    • Re: Thoughts

      1) Thanks :)
      3) Small version ? You mean the larger image which your browser resized for you without asking, so it's shrunken down to illegibilty ?
      4) How are you with perl scripts ? I think releasing my harvesting script is pretty likely. But I'm not going to convert this all for webapps to be used by all of creation. I don't have that kind of cpu capacity or desire to pay for bandwidth.
  • wow I know it says dont look, but that big one crashes mozilla .. I guess I'm not running a talkback.
  • Huh.

    [info]laserhen is the center of your Philadelphia world. And she's not so much here any more.
    • Re: Huh.

      I was there last month, but alas, you had to work. I've been coming home about three times a year since I left. Maybe we'll see you next time?
      • Re: Huh.

        That was so totally unexpected. But since I made more in 40 hours contracting for the people that fired me that weekend than I'd have made in a month working there at my old salary, I hope you'll forgive me.

        Do let me know the next time you guys are coming through town; I don't need all that much notice. When [info]feng_huang called me, it would have been fine, except for this other unexpected thing that popped up first.
  • Mmmmm...directed graphs.

    I love that Cos appears to have a halo.
  • I'm not your friend *sniffle*

    [info]n_tropy says I'm cool, damnit! So nyah! :-p
