Several people have asked me how I produced the visualizations that I used in my talk on del.icio.us . While those visualizations were constructed with a rather eclectic mixture of homebrewed code, assorted applications, and a good bit of elbow grease, I decided to put together a tutorial for people who might be interested in this type of visual exploration, but are not inclined to write custom Perl code to do so. Hence, I have selected a combination of two very nice applications for Mac OS X - Anthracite and OmniGraffle - to produce similar visualizations.
“Post comments to suggest any tools I missed here”…OK, here goes. As part of a tutorial on how to build side-bars for IE without having to learn C++ (instead using XForms), I produced a panel that allows you to add the current browser page to del.icio.us–with tags–in one click. The XForm side-bar picks up the title of the page you are looking at in the main frame, as well as any keywords in the META tags, which will then be used as tag suggestions. The description of the link is automatically set to the description from the META tags (if there is one), or alternatively you can hightlight some text in the main document and that will be used instead. There’s also an input box that uses Google Suggest if you want to try and standardise on tags.
