rofo.ca - a geo/social network visualization of the Rob Ford saga.
The Rob Ford story has been a wild one, but there's so many characters that it's hard to remember them all. I'm a social psychology PhD student studying memes, and I've gotten deep into social network analysis over the past 2 years. Naturally, I decided to find out whether I could apply social network methods to the Rob Ford story. The result is rofo.ca
, which displays many of the people, places, events, and phone calls that have shown up in newspapers and police reports. rofo.ca
can serve as a complement to Robyn Doolittle's book, Crazy Town
, and to the other reporting that has covered Rob Ford.
