The next version of One Word Visualization visualizes a given text with a single line. I call it One Line Visualization and let’s abbreviate it as “OLViz”.
Idea of OLViz is to use a single colored line in 3D space to represent text. The way its done is to calculate MD5 hash from text and then use that hash as seed for Processing‘s random generator. Line vector coordinates, color and rotations are randomized and since each seed is unique then all texts have unique one line visualization.

The reason why bug happened was because of one little comma… The excerpt below shows the bug in the list that is used to generate bar chart with Google Charts.
The code below has no comma and it works.
The bug fix in the code generation is below.
for company,tweetCount in rankingDict:
I post weekly statistics of DJIA and OMXH25 companies’ tweeting activity where companies are ranked by the number of tweets during the previous week (Mon-Sun). See this Top tweeters (DJIA) 23.4. – 29.4.2012 as an example.
I generated, using Processing programming language, a few visualizations of Twitter account names (here and here). The language’s web site introduces Processing well: “Processing is an open source programming language and environment for people who want to create images, animations, and interactions“. There’s also a good introduction to the language available at IBM developerWorks.
The algorithm I used is very simple but results can be quite appealing (well, at least I think so and there’s certain beauty in simplicity…)
The time period of this history is from 2002, when I first released it at IBM alphaWorks, until now, 2011.
This is “reprint” of my entry in developerWorks blog plus some additional comments.

History of Lotus Notes Command Line Email Client started around Spring 2002 while my work involved to use some pretty resource-consuming software products in my laptop (Thinkpad T20, if I remember correctly). Continue reading “About the history of CLENotes”
