Research Chronology Revisited (2006)

Research Chronology Revisited is a chronological visualization of bookmarking activity, powered by information retrieved from the del.icio.us social bookmarking web site. Users are invited to enter their del.icio.us username and password and allow the visualization to map out their research activity along a time line, connecting posts together with tag lines.

The combination of tag lines and the investigation of tag usage reveals trends in the users bookmarking habits on various dimensions; whether they cluster their research in small bursts, tend to work during certain hours, how they shift focus over time, etc.

The project is the re-investigation into an earlier project on the same topic with a heightened awareness of design needs and functionality.
