#hashmash visualization mock-up

Post date: 28-Apr-2011 15:54:14

I saw a tweet about this great tool called #hashmash

You can view it at http://www.simonpainter.com/hashmash/

Got me thinking about a way to visualize the information and I came up with this...

After I posted this on Twitter, the following responses popped up: -

I looked up JSON and it turned out to be JavaScript Object Notation, a lightweight data-interchange format which is easy to read and write.

So, to create the visualisation, I'd need: -

1) to know how to grab the JSON output from HashMash

2) how to create the visualisation based on the output

This will be an excellent distraction from the #royalwedding.

Started by having a look at http://code.google.com/apis/visualization/documentation/reference.html then moved onto http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJ6vQjsJQMA
