Roadtrip through Sweden

Some pictures from my roadtrip through southern Sweden in July 2010 before studying at KTH Stockholm.

TwitterExplorer

Finished my work on TwitterExplorer (as far as work can ever be finished). It now features a huge, interactive clustered network of Twitter #hashtags. There are detailed statistics, timelines, and a classification (attempt) for each hashtag, plus a separate clustered network of the 3-hop network around it.

This is one more Python/Django application (for details, see the about page). Especially the interactive graph involved a lot of JavaScript tweaks with the JavaScript InfoVis Toolkit, although I’m not really sure whether it was really worth using it—in the end, I might have needed less code by starting from scratch, using just jQuery and and the HTML5 canvas element.

This is also the first time I placed a flattr button somewhere. Let’s see how much it generates—I don’t have any expectations.
