Reflection #3: A visualization of Wikipedia Rabbit Holes

Visualization technology is great, and this is another example. Getting a much different perspective and representation of data such that articles represent stars and showing relevance to other articles based on length makes the model easy to digest. It’s a great way to understand the connectedness of topics and ultimately what the editors believe is relevant to link to, this was only done with one hundred thousand articles, it’d certainly be interesting to see the visualization of the whole of Wikipedia and it’s potential rabbit holes. After using the visualization myself you can get lost in the rabbit hole of the model itself, fun to play around with.
