Rendering httpd Development Activity

This has already been Slashdotted, but it’s so cool I just had to mention it. Michael Ogawa at UC Davis has graphed the development activity of a number of open source projects, including the Apache HTTP Server. If you run the video, you’ll see developer’s names float in and out as their activity level rises and subsides:

code_swarm – Apache from Michael Ogawa on Vimeo.

If you’re seeing this in syndication, the embedded video may not come across so do click on the post title, or go directly to the movie site. There is a sound control in the movie pane to turn down the perky electrobeat, although it fits the datastream perfectly.

Very cool stuff.
