figtThe Fidg't Visualizer allows you to play around with your network. You interface with the Visualizer through Flickr and LastFM tags, using any tag to create a Magnet. Once a Tag Magnet is created, members of the network will gravitate towards it if they have photos or music with that same Tag.

This simple mechanic lets you visualize your Network in a unique way, demonstrating its Predisposition towards certain things. What is more popular amongst people in your Network - rock or electronic music? Are photos of buildings more popular than photos of sunsets? Based on how your network reacts to those Tags, you might get an answer. The Visualizer also shows how your Network compares to a random sampling of the networks of other Fidg't users, letting you see how your network stacks up to others?

For good measure, you can also search through the network for certain users, and check out their recent photos and music. This visualizer is just one example of some of the cool Address Book applications you could build on top of our web services.

Trail meme

Trailmeme is a new kind of Web publishing that you can use to create a trail of content on a specific topic that’s interesting to you. You can also read other peoples’ trails and walk them to keep up with any updates they make.
The technology allows you to gather related content from the Web in one place, in an order or sequence that you think helps make sense of it all. Any number of pages can be collected, organized, and annotated in whatever way you think is best. Trails don't need to go in a straight line, either. You can make a whole map of content from different sites, connecting web content in multiple and meaningful ways.

UUorld (pronounced "world") provides an immersive mapping environment, high-quality data, and critical analysis tools.
Great explanations are unfortunately scarce, but UUorld makes them easier to achieve through interactive four-dimensional maps. Our solution has three simple parts:
  1. Draw on extensive, organized data.
  2. Explore and grasp complex patterns through intuitive visual analytics.
  3. Deliver new insight with compelling images and video.
We think you'll find four-dimensional mapping delivers results because the medium exposes the spatial and temporal context inherent to nearly all data
