I spent Thanskgiving and the day after relaxing in my own peculiar way--by mining the Wikileaks 9/11 pager data.
Here are some early results:
I started by pulling out all the email addresses from the pages and storing them in their own table, with keys to their original page. I also pulled the unique pager numbers from the pages. What I got was a bipartite directed graph with one side being emails and the other being pagers, with messages functioning as edges. Using Django, Graphviz, Cinelerra and a bunch of other tools, I was able to make a video of the graph as it lights up on each relevant page.
