Interactive Simple Networks

December 31, 2014

This post isn’t anything new in terms of analysis, but just a cooler look at a previous post.  I looked at board members of large companies in a previous blog post and showed via a simple network how they share board members and provided some commentary about that in terms of how board membership represents desired influence in markets.

Below is an image of those boards and companies that is linked to an interactive network (really just moves around using the very cool networkD3 package in R) that is bit more fun that static network images.

You can click the nodes to highlight what they are and you can move them around.  For analysis purposes, not necessarily breakthrough, but the visualization is very cool.
