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.
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).
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.
Alexis Jacomy who made some of the best applications for web graph visualizations (SIGMa and GexfWalker among them) has come up with the new tool Sigma.Js, which is going to be huge and I’ll explain why.
Information Theory of Complex Networks: on evolution and architectural constraints paper by Sole and Valverde (2004) features a very interesting chart that shows how different types of networks relate to each other in terms of their randomness, heterogeneity, and modularity.
