Network: Visualizing the Social Network of Minecraft Planning Designing Prototype Pre-Release Official Release Introduction to Social Networks Social Networks have become a theme of our current era. The wide adaptation of the internet has allowed many social networks to crop up, connecting people to one another. However, one common aspect of all of these social networks is that they've mostly been "active" social networks, they require the users to sign up and interact with the other users on that specific social network. A "passive" social network would be one that simply follows people, tracking their interactions with other users behind the scenes, requiring users to do no extra work. Another missing social network is that of Minecraft. Sure there are forums, and probably a few, failed Facebook-like creations, but there have been none that have fully captured the interaction of users in Minecraft. With Network, I hope to visualize the full nature of the Minecraft network, while doing it passively for implicit and simple user adoption. What Do I Need? I'm looking for a few coders or simply imaginative people that would like to help me with this project. As I'm taking courses and will be traveling around this semester, I won't have as much time to devote to this project as I'd like. So, I'd love the help of anyone who could do any of the following things: Has a decent amount of plugin coding or java coding experience Has MySQL + PHP experience Has HTML5 Canvas or graphics visualizing graphs/networks experience Has knowledge about social/information networks Is insanely imaginative, and is already in love with the idea of Network. Either way, thanks for taking the time to read about my idea, and let me know what you think or any ideas you have.
