Unfortunately I had to pull out of doing my lightning talk at NDF, I simply didn’t have the time to be able finish what I was going to present. I felt it was better to pull out than do something that wasn’t up to scratch, not really fair on the conference attendees otherwise.
But I still think the idea has some merit, so here is a snippet of the unfinished, rough edged, cut down for youtube, thing I was going to present
Massive thanks to Andrew Caudwell who writes Gource, without which this would not be possible.
It’s running circulation data with 1 minute = 1 day, but it’s equally interesting running a bit slower. There is a lot more I wanted to do, like using the actual book covers, visualising more data, like acquisition, and cataloguing .. tracking an item throughout its life. All of which is easily doable, just with more time.
Anyway, I hope people get something out of it.
