VisLink Technique Used to Analyze Blogger Behaviour

Masahiko Itoh and colleagues at the Institute of Industrial Science, University of Tokyo have published a paper at Pacific Vis 2012 [PDF] analyzing the temporal changes in bloggers' activities and interests, with a visualization similar to my VisLink technique.  They bring together linguistic analysis on snapshots of blogging and microblogging activity to dynamically create "temporal slices", which are time-specific visualizations on visualization planes.  These planes are then lined up and connected using the VisLink technique to connect sequential time slices and reveal patterns of temporal change.
