Attending events that connect you to great ideas and people is even more satisfying when you get a really good look at the people and communities connected by them. For instance, at SchipulCon you probably hung out with folks from NASA, a local robotics team, business leaders and the founders of both WordPress and Drupal – how’s THAT for networking!
Sure you can stare at nametags and your stack of post-conference business cards, but sociologist and data analyzer Marc Smith‘s (from the Social Media Research Foundation) visual data set is even more satisfying!
He took a look at SchipulCon-related Tweets and content to provide us a cool data set to stare at, trace and make mental associations. Find yourself and ogle the fascinating communities that came together through SchipulCon – many thanks to Marc!!
