Mapping a Network

In this video, created by Jaromil during the INC Wintercamp, the activity of the mailing list over the years is mapped visually. I think this is a great approach to showing what a network is about, because essentially, it's the pattern of communications that describes its activity and can show its scope.

So look at the bottom right corner (sorry, its small here, you can also go directly to the vimeo page to see it better)... you can see the date scrolling along, showing the mailing list time-line. In some moments there is tons of activity, others less and its clear that from the start, throughout, Jaromil is a central point, though in some moments some others take over activity.
