Visualizing Pressible: Blog Clusters & Growth of a System

| July 20, 2010

I’m interested in visualizing the Pressible ‘ecosystem’ – and wanted to see in a time-based way how the system as a whole has developed. Using Processing, I created this animation, which shows the system grow over the span of about a year.

Each individual ‘cluster’ is a blog in the Pressible system. The coloured dots around the clusters are unique posts, which appear in ‘real time’ as the calendar reaches the day on which they were published.
