I have been too lazy/ busy to write anything in the recent past. But because email analytics gets me so excited (case in point: post 1
and post 2
) I couldn't help but share this cool visualization gadget
from MIT media labs (thanks to a friend who posted it in google plus). It seems that the algorithm basically goes through your emails and tries to link contacts based on correspondences. It is pretty cool that the Nepali folks at CMU, friends from Oberlin, and research related CMU people cluster nicely. This is in line with another good post I read today in the Harvard Business Review about visualization of big data.
