In the Web 2.0 Expo keynotes we’ve been experimenting with a segment called “What X Knows”. The Web 2.0 services that we use learn a lot about their users. We asked some of those companies to share some of their info-porn with us. Current, the user-generated TV channel, made an under-one-minute visualization of the videos from their site that have the most views. The embedded video shows an image for each video; each image stays up in proportion to how popular the video was.
This technique makes for a very interesting video and is a great model for how to visualize this type of data.
