An animation

A couple of days ago, David Lazer asked me to help him generate an animation of the spread of MFN (trade) treaties in the 1860s.

His resulting post on The emergence of international order: The case of MFN treaties in the 1860’s is worth a read! Also, David’s post sparked a nice follow up blog post focusing on the role of animations as a network research tools.

  1. Hi Sune – this is Annamaria – director of the film on network science. I wonder if anyone compared the social network structure of guilds/raiding parties in World of Warcraft and that of ancient tribes as the Hadza in Tanzania.

    If you have any suggestion, please contact me at

    Hope all is well!
