Very cool – Genealogy of Influence site

Posted by Tanas Gjorgoski on January 25, 2007

Visit this site for a cool widget that lets you explore influences between philosophers, scientists, artists, etc… From what I understood it gets the information about the relations from wikipedia. (via Eric Blue’s Blog)

A post on Boing Boing has the following quote:

Genealogy of Influence allows you to visually trace the connections between the most influential writers, artists, philosophers, scientists, and mathematicians of Western culture. You can pull up a short bio (stripped from Wikipedia) by hovering over a person’s name, or click through to the full Wikipedia article. I also made a colorful hierarchical image of the same data.
