Visualizing YouTube, Blogs, Twitter, Flickr, People…

From the guys who brought you 6pli and other like-minded network visualization tools, Bestiario takes 6pli to the next level. 6pli lets users explore their bookmarks. This work, in collaboration with Harvard Berkaman, also lets users explore their bookmarks – as well as YouTube videos, Flickr photos, Twitter tweets, and content from Wikipedia, blogs, and other places. Items are clustered by content type and meta information. Yes, it’s a whole lot of stuff in one place.

The main idea is to take a few steps away from the list and scroll paradigm – sort of like DoodleBuzz, but from a more analytical standpoint. Does it make all those personal streams easier to browse and explore than something like FriendFeed? You be the judge.
