A 50 mail update to the map. Despite the small amount of info added by this update, it changes the map layout a lot. They are some update policy that i have been using since the beginning of the project that this update helps to pinpoint as artifacts. I would like to delete/reduce the impact of those artifacts by no longer considering single e.mails as nodes … because if this is done, it only adds to the graph ‘s complexity and prevent to clearly render its depth … i will now consider and rework the base file in accordance with those observations … all links will be between persons. no matter if the connection has been used once or more … Every person can only appear once as “emitter” in the source file, no matter how many time or what group of people that person sent mail to. This modification of the database organisation (source file) is a mean of simplification and is a more accurate answer to the initial project direction : render connection, between individual, built by information exchanges.
Hint : red dots = people / blue dots = mail / yellow dots = me / people are ordinated by activity from bottom to top. The more mail they send to the pool and the earlyer and often they take part in the chain, the upper in the map and its hyerarchy they are.
Where am i in the network? People send me e.mail and don’t even know who am i and sometimes i don’t know who they are. when i browse the mail list of unhidden message recipient field, i usually find names of addresses that means something to me but mostly coming from unknown senders. How did they get my mail and how did they ever came to the point that i could be interested? Do they even know who i am, who are the other recipient? This tells a lot on information and more on information network. What is the point? This is some anti-facebook. An un-friendlist.

The map is rendered from a dot language file built up from mail i received and compiled into a png file using graphviz.
