Community Indicators for Your Community

Real, lasting community change is built around knowing where you are, where you want to be, and whether your efforts are making a difference. Indicators are a necessary ingredient for sustainable change. And the process of selecting community indicators -- who chooses, how they choose, what they choose -- is as important as the data you select.

This is an archive of thoughts I had about indicators and the community indicators movement. Some of the thinking is outdated, and many of the links may have broken over time.

Visualizing Websites as Graphs

This is an incredible article I needed to share. The author uses a simple web applet, provided free on the site, to analyze the link structure of websites, and then chart it out. It's much more beautiful than it sounds.

Check out Websites as Graphs to see what I'm talking about.

Because the author color-coded the types of tags, the graphics are really quite interesting, and convey a rich depth of information (besides just looking pretty.)
