A thing called “Refined Practice” has made some charts of the first eight months of the lobbying data, here. I have two points.
Point the first, their charts are force-directed bubbles, but they don’t use any network analysis, so once the force-directed algo converges, you get a succession of bubbles of varying sizes in a circle around another bubble. This is far from an ideal way to visualise information. Small-multiple bar charts would be better.
Point the second, I dropped off a link to one of the Project Lobster posts in their comments, which was held in moderation but has now just disappeared. How could it happen?
