Introducing: the Open Village interaction network

I made a network visualisation of the conversation around the Open Village so far.

Dots are people. Arcs represent posts in the forum. When Ahmed replies to Bader, the software draws an arc from Ahmed to Bader. The Open Village forum is coloured blue. The Open Village Festival Forum is coloured red. Gray nodes represent people that have contributed to both. As you can see, the two conversations are densely connected ā€“ so much, in fact, that they make up one larger unit.

Overall, the conversation so far involved 172 active participants, who wrote 2,218 posts in English, Arabic and a little French, for a total of 395,000 words. Click on the image below to enlarge it.
