Okay, if you didn’t watch it, hear about it, or ignore it, some basketball dude named LeBron James made his “Decision” on where he would next play professional basketball last week. Our friends at BreakingMedia have an interesting visualization representation of ESPN’s coverage of LeBron’s decision and fan reaction here.
BreakingMedia looks at the visualization of the word cloud based on the transcript of the actual interview and then intersperses a visualization of more than 200 comments on Cleveland.com. This visualization shows the relationship between words commonly linked by the word “and” in the thread.
Very interesting use of word and metadata visualization in a non-business business intelligence application.
