Ryan Byrd over at healthTech.accordingtome.com has a great picture of the HIT blogosphere.
Here’s how he described what he did:
What does the healthcare blogosphere look like? That is, how are all the healthcare IT blogs interconnected?
I wrote a quick program that extracted the blogs listed there and for each of them, I spidered the first page for links and checked to see if those links linked back to the original 50. Then my program created a network graph that displayed the connections while scaling the size of each site’s node proportional to the number of other sites linking to it.
Looks like a great picture, Ryan. Nice job.
