I saw the Facebook movie this afternoon. Really good movie, with some interesting takes on the key characters…

I wondered what social networks might have been like for the great philosophers and writers of the ages…?

A team at Stanford has put together a series of visualizations of the way that their networks looked. You can filter based on geographies and volume of correspondence from 1700 to 1801. Fascinating.

The article about it from Fast Company magazine is here.
