Boing Boing / Mashable Trends

Federated Media


UX Design, HTML/CSS, JavaScript, PHP implementation

This project was part of an ad campaign for the Palm Pre, in partnership with popular blogs Boing Boing and Mashable.

The concept was to show what the "community" for each site was talking about for a given day. The "community" was defined by the Twitter followers for each site.

Tweets from the community were parsed and analyzed for content; links, keywords, images, videos, etc. These results were then visualized on their respective sites.

I designed and built the front end for each site, working with one other developer who built the back end in Python. Charts were built using pChart.
