Smart mobs measure informational distance
April 29th, 2008

The image here is graphically displaying informational distances between cities. It is from a research project by Bestiario. The idea of mobbing among individuals connected by mobiles rests in part, it would seem to me, on what is being shown here. The project introduction says:

This tridimensional scheme represents the strength of relations between cities from searches on google. The main idea is to compare the number of pages on internet where the two cities appear one close to the other, with the number of pages they appear isolated. This proportion indicates some kind of intensity of relation between the cities. . . .
