This evening I’ve been catching up on blog reading – one of the sites that jumped out at me was Miss Geeky. Melinda aka Miss Geeky wrote about this site called Personas by some people at MIT in the USA.
I wasn’t sure what it did so I read the site and it says this:
Enter your name, and Personas scours the web for information and attempts to characterize the person – to fit them to a predetermined set of categories that an algorithmic process created from a massive corpus of data. The computational process is visualized with each stage of the analysis, finally resulting in the presentation of a seemingly authoritative personal profile.
If you click the images they will take you to my Flickr Photostream where there should be a larger image 😀
