metamaps and the Global Brain

I’ve been following along with the work of the Global Brain Institute and the Evolution, Complexity and Cognition Research Group since 2009. Their research is headed up by Francis Heylighen, one of the foremost researchers and academics exploring collective intelligence. I’ve taken the opportunity to explore how aligns with the vision of the Global Brain Institute. We expect this vision to continue to evolve. Download the whitepaper here: & the Global Brain. From the Global Brain Institute site: We see people, machines and software systems as agents that communicate via a complex network of communication links. Network Visualisation. Spring update. Its spring cleaning time, a good chance to share an update on where we are with the project and our work as a network!

Spring update

First things first – we've co-located to Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario (the tech capital of Canada, so we're told) to dive into the next phase of project development on This marks the first time that Connor, Marija and I are spending an extended period of time working together in person – and its really making a difference!

Commoner. The Belief Genome Project by Sidian M.S. Jones. Like Belief Genome on Facebook The Belief Genome is an open source web app which aims to map all human beliefs and belief relationships by crowdsourcing information from users.

The Belief Genome Project by Sidian M.S. Jones

Your beliefs create the genome. Beliefs are the often hidden yet underlying subtext for all human decisions, actions, and behavior. The intent of this project is to provide a platform for both personal discovery and a living database of information for cultural research. The Belief Genome Project — Interview with Sidian M.S. Jones. Peter Rothman November 7, 2012.

CNN launches #COP17 Twitter data visualisation tool

CNN has launched a great Twitter data visualization tool called ‘Ecosphere’ in support of the COP17 climate change conference in Durban, which starts this week. The site picks up every tweet tagged with the #COP17 hashtag and uses them to stimulate growth in a plant or tree in the Ecosphere that represents a certain topic, such as sustainability. The Ecosphere constantly listens to the global conversation on Twitter and every new tweet tagged with hashtag #COP17 is brought into the environment, scanned for keywords and then grouped with similar contributions, connecting input from around the world, and building conversations within the dynamic environment. It produces a lush 3D environment that allows you to explore, view content up close or zoom out to observe the visualisation as a whole.

The piece is our attempt to distill their visions into abstract compositions. To create the images in luscious, we began with a series of magazine advertisements for luxury brands. We then used a custom algorithm designed to extract “peak” colors from any picture (much like our Wired anniversary piece). A random arrangement of concentric circles fills the plane, representing the essential colors of each region. Twitter Co. Conversations. Luscious. Mind Mapping 3D.
