Change of Plans

After struggling for a few days with Gephi I turned to Dr Graham for some guidance.  He took a look at what I had done with tracking the museum and library conversation visually with Excel and told me that perhaps Gephi was not the best option.  Instead, he told me I should try a different program called Overview.

Therefore, I am now looking in to what Overview is all about by reading their FAQ and Blog. As far as I can tell so far it is looking pretty promising as the first paragraph of their FAQ section that answers “What is Overview?” states, “Overview is intended to help journalists, researchers, and other curious people make sense of massive, disorganized collections of electronic documents. It’s a visualization and analysis tool designed for sets of documents, typically thousands of pages of material”.

PERFECT!  Well I will try not to jump ahead to far in my excitement…
