Pret­ty pic­tures

Satur­day 25 July 2009 23:30

Visu­al­iz­ing Mil­lions of Iran Tweets. What I'm afraid of is that those same meth­ods are used to find ter­rists. Most­ly ig­nor­ing the con­tent of mes­sages be­cause it's to com­pli­cat­ed to do any­thing with that and just fo­cus­ing on the net­work. It like search­ing for the car keys you lost us­ing Google be­cause that's more con­ve­nient than ac­tu­al­ly go­ing out­side. And once you show up some­where in some pret­ty pic­ture vi­su­al­iz­ing some ter­rist net­work it will be hard to con­vince some goons that when they look at the ac­tu­al - maybe sar­cas­tic - con­tent of the mes­sages their pret­ty pic­ture is worth­less. But as long as they fo­cus on fil­ter­ing on Ah­madine­jad and for­get محمود احمدی‌نژاد they will probably get their ass kicked once in a while. So what have they visualized? How a certain type of western media professional gets all hyped up about something?
