I'm going to be on vacation from tomorrow for a week (phew). If you've been reading this blog recently, you may have noticed a few attempts at using hyperbolic projections for graphs. Below is a cleaner image of part of the blogosphere viewed in this fish-eye lens manner. The advantage of the projection is that it gives clarity to local features while maintaining the global context. Here I have focused on a livejournal blog. This blog is not in the core of the blogosphere, but in a separate but still large partition of livejournal bloggers. In the smaller image below, this community is to be found on the right hand side. In the hyperbolic projection, one can see the local structure, the distant core (to the left) and the closer livejournal community to the right.

Below is a graph of the 5 largest partitions of the blogosphere in the sample of data I am using. The above blog is located in the partition to the right.
