  1. I really love this visualization. Made a similar but simpler one once to get a hang of the chronology of Pulp Fiction.

    I’m a bit of a visualization and data nerd learning about Semantic Web, and was thinking that there must be a place for taxonomies like these, for example for complex data sets like the contents of the Illuminatus trilogy books. But I don’t know where to look, would you?

    Probably people who wants to do things like this set up wikies, but that’s not as powerful and clean as RDF data. And compared with things like prezi, gapminder etc., linear text is a terrible way to communicate intricate stories!

    Cheers
