Thanks for the kind words. Looks like it just completed a batch, so the state it's at now is with most everyone on the site.

I just changed it so when you mouse over a node, it will hide all nodes that aren't directly connected to it. It makes things a little less busy. So if I want to see a group of the circlejerkers, that mostly revolve around ytknows, I can mouse over his name, and it's pretty clear to see that it's a well defined community that doesn't really include other big names from around the site.

I could definitely add a search feature. Or, could begin classifying the graph into clusters based on a number of different factors. Previously I did one for reddit subreddits, based on betweenness centrality. Either would make it more understandable, it's definitely a bit overwhelming at the moment.

Cool, I can see my name in the stars. I'll finally die happy.

For a random little thing you've just put together like this, it's really frickin' neat. I can't wait to see a directed version if and when you get it going :)

A little search box that returns the entered visualization would be pretty sweet, and quite utilitarian. BTW, awesome visualization rozap. I feel like the Hubski API could eventually nurture tinkering like this too, -besides mobile apps.

Might be better to do that when you click on someone? Ideally when you left click on someone. It got a lot harder to surf around the map now, and it's way laggier. Apparently, I'm never satisfied. But I swear I think that this is cool!
