Project Description:
Timothy O'Brien used Python and GraphViz to generate this astonishing visualization of his 1st and 2nd level of connections on the O'Reilly Connection social networking site. The red highlighted connections are from Tim O'Reilly to other people, and, predictably, he's at the center of the activity.

The graph was created by crawling FOAF (Friend Of A Friend) documents from Timothy's O'Reilly Connection profile and then obtaining the FOAF documents of people associated with him. The results were then stored in a neato format and visualized using graphviz neato.
