This might be old news, but it was new to me. I thought you might find
this interesting. The completed maps are animated.

PieSpy is a tool designed to infer and visualize social networks on
Internet Relay Chat (IRC). It works by applying simple heuristics to
work out who is talking to whom. This information can be used to produce
a visualization of the social network, essentially showing which users
are connected and how strong those connections are. As PieSpy matured,
it became obvious that IRC was not the only suitable testing ground. By
feeding PieSpy with the entire texts of Shakespeare plays, it became
possible to produce drawings of the social networks present in his plays
- it is now possible to visualize the relationships between the
characters in his works.

Does this seem like a waste of time or does anyone see any value here?
