Berlin based designer and programmer Christopher Warnow had a closer look at the interest graph between people reading the same books. He developed an application that loads recommendations for a given book on Amzon.com and converts visualizes the information as a network. Soon, milieus of interest emerge showing related topics and additional literature.
The application is written in Processing leveraging the power of the open source graph visualization library Gephi Toolkit. You can download the tool and read more information on Christopher’s website.
