The Social Fabric social network visualization for cellphones

Social Fabric

Steven Blyth's thesis project, The Social Fabric, attempts to create a visual representation of your social network on your cellphone or handheld device. It uses a series of avatars in various states of attentiveness based on "the frequency of all digital communications between you and each person." So if you've just talked to someone, they'll be standing upright and alert, but if you've been ignoring someone's emails for the past few weeks, they'll turn their back on you. Ouch, that hurts.
