Hi everyone,

Just wanted to share a little demo I put together for a talk I gave
last week at SAPO Codebits (http://codebits.sapo.pt/) in Lisbon which
btw, is heavily inspired in Yahoo! Hackday...

It's basically an XFN crawler that puts the nodes into a dynamic graph
(using the great JIT) which you can recenter by clicking on the
people's names and start over from a new url by clicking on the url
you want.


I demo-ed it at the event and some people really grasped the magnitude
of microformats when they saw how much of the social graph around them
it was able to discover.

It's not very efficient, so it might take some time...but hey, it's fun! ;)

If you have some feedback or suggestions, let me know. I'm using
Dmitry's Optimus behind it, so if you can think of cool visualizations
for other formats, please share... it might be easy to put together.

André Luís
