Links to the origins and development of these projects are below. Thanks guys, this was a tremendous undertaking and truly inspiring for us all!

    I don't think it's an accident that the Flickrverse looks like a bikini top. : )

    Tarin you made me laugh hard!
    I was quite bummed when the initial graphs were likened to Mickey Mouse, then tried to get a "galactic" look to it, finally the design constraints made me squish it into its current shape.

    A bikini top? LOL indeed, and I'm not one to use that acronym! :)

    Cool. Any reason not to use the original graph?
