A visualization of people who’ve contributed to the Barack Obama page on Wikipedia. Users who edit a lot drift toward the center. Best watched full screen in HD!

Visualized using code_swarm (Processing) and my new Wikipedia page history parser Wikiswarm (Ruby). Code and instructions on how to make your own visualizations can be found in the README or on jamiedubs.com

Music is from DJ Z-Trip’s Obama Mix.

  5. Hi jamie, couple of changes to wikipedia.rb:
    after Line 6 add: require ‘hpricot’
    change line 21 to: agent = Mechanize.new

    this was for ubuntu10.04. Cant get code_swarm to run through completely though, just hangs the system requiring a hard reboot
