I’m currently developing an interactive Twitter data visualization & analysis application. Here are some of the initial screenshots of the visualization.

Resistance is futile

Every time I suggest Twitter or Tumblr to friends,¬†colleagues, family or anyone that isn’t on either of them; they hate it. Always. Even though they don’t completely understand what it is, how it works or what it can give them. Social media is here to stay and is clearly the way of the future. We’re going to see a rapid increase in its integration in our lifetime. How do I know? Because our culture is social and technology is an exponential upward trend. This is why America, birthplace of the internet, is what it is. We embrace progress and¬†progress doesn’t wait.

Want more?

So the other day I posted some code and said don’t get used to it. People seemed to like that little snippet though. Flash Builder, ActionScript 3 & data integration are my specialties. Anyone want more? Twitter API authentication examples? Want to know how to get data into your application? Mobile app example?
