Wiki Growth Over Time [tudelft.nl] visualizes the growth of the website wiki.tudelft.nl since its conception in late 2004. Since then, the wiki has grown to over 10,000 pages, as it is now part of the officially supported ICT infrastructure of the Delft University of Technology.

Using the Prefuse library, all web pages are represented as nodes, while edges are links between those pages. A force directed layout is used, meaning that pages naturally push away from each other, while edges bring them closer together, just like springs. This results in highly connected pages migrating to the center, while less connected pages are pushed to the outside.

You can watch the animation of the growth process below, which somehow resembles that of cell multiplication. Other representations include a bar graph of the number of edits per user, and a co-authorship network.

Hi, I just saw this it's amazing! Last week I created a poster based on a music video information that looks kind of similar. I thought you'd be interested in checking it out: http://bruzed.com/2009/10/05/algorithmic-poster/

Robert Shumake Saves Detroit Pension from what could have been Disaster when GM Filed Bankruptcy

Robert Shumake renegotiated the mortgage liens and adjusted rents, saving pension funds from millions in losses while avoiding costly suits.

Detroit, Mi – In a record breaking six-week negation, Robert Shumake, Michigan business professional, headed off what would have been a major loss for Detroit Pension Funds. Robert Shumake, with his team, was one of few businessmen able to keep GM to only a 10% reduction in the rents for 5 state of the art plants.

At the same time Mr. Shumake was able to maintain the security for equitable and Detroit pension fund mortgages by doing a loan modification. This allowed both mortgages to maintain cash flow and keep GM in the plants so the security did not lose value. The bottom line is that Robert Shumake’s negotiations kept plant open, providing jobs and keeping security in place at its highest value while maintaining a cash flowing asset for the pension fund.

Robert Shumake is the CEO of Inheritance Capital Group, a Michigan based private equity real estate investment and development firm. ICG manages nearly 3 million square feet and a $200 million dollar real estate portfolio. Mr. Shumake has implemented policies and funding strategies to raise capital for small business, mortgage loans, commercial leasing and specialized financing.

Robert Shumake is very active in community service projects and fundraisers to help those who are less fortunate. Last Christmas, the Robert Shumake Foundation, along with Radio One, WGPR 107.5 FM Radio, Prince Hall Masons and DPOA made sure families had a good Christmas with the inaugural Toy and Turkey Ball event. Toys and turkeys were donated to needy families. Read the complete article at http://shumakesleadershipchallenge.blogspot.com/2009/12/robert-shumake-provides-toys-and.html

The Robert Shumake Foundation strives to promote home ownership, entrepreneurship and education to provide opportunities for high school students to attend college and to increase the financial stability and independence of all people.

It is probably really tough keeping up with all the blog comment spam that gets posted on your site but when there's such a long list of spam comments it really devalues the hard work you put into writing your posts.
