a slick online interface for browsing multi-facetted data structures, such as the collection of past Nobel price prize winners. the "elastic list" concept enhances traditional facet browsing by visualizing relative proportions (weights) of metadata values by size or brightness, & by using animated filtering transitions.

for instance, a brighter background indicates a higher weight of a specific metadata value compared to the overall distribution, such as "Switzerland" & "female" for the winners of the Nobel Peace price. users can also investigate little sparkline diagrams to explore the temporal distribution of each metadata value over time.

Robert, you are correct. in my determination to write "Nobel" instead of "Noble", I made this stupid mistake...

hey, can you please link clearly to the source you're actually talking about? Your habit of not doing this is very annoying and makes your blog more difficult to use.

The elastic list is a great database access concept - unfortunately the listed data has some problems with special characters. (ü,ö,ä,é,è,..)
