Real Time Visualizations Of Conversations

April 27th, 2010

In my role at Intel, I am presented with some pretty unique digital marketing opportunities.  One of my favorite was working with the team over at Digg on creating a new visualization in their Digg Labs environment – called Digg Arc.  This was a real-time visualization of the top content being ‘Dugg’ on the main Digg site. It’s an interesting way to digest content and show the threading of how it’s rising in relevancy as your watching the infograph expand, shift, and change.

It appears that our work together was a bit ahead of it’s time (that was back in 2007) when compared to some of the visualizations that are being released today around Twitter.
