i keep trying to figure out how you made this.

Experimenting with a node and link system for a relational graph project.
@John — I wrote a script in AS3 that creates 20 nodes and draws a link between each one. Every 5 nodes, the base link color changes. Each link has a doppelgänger overlapping it as I've not yet bothered to ensure a single relationship between each node. This is running off of an XML document, so structuring for that gets a little more complicated.
Very cool! Is this sort of thing intended for information graphics?
Yeah, it's for an infographic illustrating connections between objects. The project I'm working on doesn't have all of these connections, but I commented out a few lines to generate the complete set.
Ok, that is WAY cool. Can't wait to see what you do with it!
Wow, fascinating. Share some more!
Trying to wrap my (Illustrator tutorial, in other words: non script) brain around this one :) Very cool!
I've advanced a bit on the project since posting this, but I went back tonight and made a scaled down version to recreate this state (although some color layering is different). I'm slowly animating all of the lines in from each node, so hopefully this will shed some light on how the final result is being produced:
This is awesome. (If you're doing this at work, you have a great job.) Dying to know what data it will be depicting.

Surprise! That previous dribbble was simulating every possible connection between the nominees of the top four character categories for this year's Academy Awards. Mind you, the right half of the piece isn't as clean and polished as I'd like, but it was a fairly quick turn-around project. I was really interested in getting the connections graph functioning.
