Web-log Continuum Sparklines in Development

by November 3, 2004

Last month I outlined a visual means of expanding the Web-log Continuums I had implemented on Functioning Form using Edward Tufte’s Sparklines. Recently the concept became a Flash development challenge:

“Gregory Narain at SocialTwister offers a challenge to high-end Flash coders. He has the syntax to parameterize an implementation of Luke Wroblewski's weblog diagram, and is seeking an example of this use in SWF.” - John Dowdell, Macromedia

Also, Stowe Boyd at Corante recently proposed some additional data points that might be represented by a Web-log Continuum Sparkline including: “community dimensions (how many readers of each entry) and real-time presence (how many people are engaged in reading the various entries, right now?).”
