iPod Ecosystem

Project Description:
These two images reflect the evolution of Apple's iPod "ecosystem" and its giant leap into mainstream. The first image exposes the initial network in 2001, the year the device was launched, while the second shows the same network in 2004, when iPod became truly a mass product. The nodes are colored by the role they play in the portable music player industry:

yellow = competitors
green = content providers/distributors
blue = technology providers
pink = accessory makers

This is a great example of Valdis' Inflow3 software tool for measuring and mapping social networks & organizational networks. Ron
