This project reminds me of something I did a couple of years ago:
This version without a doubt is far nicer and much more refined. In
fact I think it looks stunning. But I think it's essentially it's the
same concept - basically - taking words and phrases from live feeds
-blogs - then converting into values and then representing those
values. I'm sure I wasn't the first to have tried it either.
Why the CC copyright, and is it possible to CC something that others
have explored beforehand? Under the terms of the CC copyright we are
allowed to share and remix the work but we must attribute the work to
markus kison. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/
markus - from my perspective this doesn't seem fair. You claim the
idea for yourself as officially yours and yours alone, then insist
that anyone else who's inspired by it must attribute you.

> A fascinating live visualisation of recent emotional expressions written

> textual expressions are assigned to 1 of 8 basic human emotions, which
> are represented as a 3D cone consisting of 24 distinct areas. this
> abstract diagram forms the basic shape of "pulse", a physical object
> that is able to enlarge in 24 different directions. each time a specific
> expressionistic emotion is found in a blog entry written during the last
> minute, the shapeshifting object transforms itself, so that that the new
> physical volume represents a piece of the world's current emotional
