Visualization of campaign money to Senators

Thursday, June 25th, 2009

While researching a topic, I ran across the University of Michigan Center for the Study of Complex Systems (CSCS):
CSCS.UMich.edu

I was reading a synopsis of Battle for The Mind - A Physiology of Conversion and Brain-Washing by William Sargant:
Battle for the Mind

I went to Cosma's page and he has a long list of very interesting titles:
Cosma

That eventually led me to the CSCS, which does some very interesting work!

One project that caught my attention was "a visualization that memorializes campaign contributions to the members of the 110th Congress (2007 -2009)." Highlighted in green are the primary recipients of the TARP.

Ever smell a rat, but not know quite how many or how big they are? This visualization is amazing!

Here is the link, but it is so long, you may just want to start at http://cscs.umich.edu/ and then click on this study.
TARP Study

Enjoy!
