inspired by this, i decided to graph the notes from my moth post. i only got through about 27k notes before the window froze, so the graphs include 14k reblogs (i.e., excluding likes and replies). the gif is just the algorithm adjusting to the 14k data points, but it looked so cool i had to share.
i’ll probably try to graph a slightly less insane post so i can actually get back to the first notes. i think that’ll probably make for a cleaner graph, too. but for now, that gif is so damn soothing.
now i should be asleep.
If you’re a New Yorker who likes to nerd out about maps, urbanism, and data visualization, a new app called Tunnel Vision will be like poetry to your eyes. But even if you’re not into any of those things, it might make dismal waits on subway platforms a little more fun.
