We could have also called it The Study of Political Manipulation Techniques. This article reveals how the US presidents masterfully used the right rhetorics to address the general sentiment of their voters and set the forthcoming political agenda. Comparative analysis of their inauguration speeches using dynamic text network analysis clearly demonstrates how the importance of various concepts shifts with the new political challenges that the newly elected presidents face.
How the new Facebook Graph Search promotes network thinking but keeps you within the filter bubble of your immediate surrounding.
We now offer high quality large-format prints of network visualizations created using a combination of our own software (Textexture), open-source Gephi platform, iterative algorithms, fuzzy logic, trial and error, as well as intuition, magic, science, and experiment.
It is possible to order prints of the already existing text network visualizations or to create custom-made prints using your own source data (any text, social network, or any other connectivity that can be represented as a network).
This video from South Korea shows the intricate swarm choreography of the riot police units. Notice the similarities with insect swarms and the way the whole structure operates according to the global task (move back the crowd) through local self-organized clusters.
When we read a text, we normally follow it in quite a linear fashion: from left to right, from top to bottom. Even when we skim articles quickly online, the trajectory is still the same. However, this is not the most efficient method of reading: in the age of hypertext we tend to create our own narratives using the bits and pieces from different sources.
As a response to this challenge we at Nodus Labs developed a new free online software tool Textexture.Com, which visualizes any text as a network and enables the user to use this interactive visualization to read through the text in a non-linear fashion.
