My colleague, Eduarda Mendes-Rodriguez, recently demoed NodeXL at the Microsoft EU Innovation Day event in Brussels, Belgium.  She illustrates the value of network analysis in general with a social network diagram representing the voting patterns of United States Senators in 2007.  The results show the clear party-line clustering and the presence of a few fence sitters, one of whomn just recently changed party.  I think the difference between the two party’s internal cohesion is an interesting observation as well.

Eduarda does a great job demonstrating the ease with which a sophisticated analysis can be implemented via the NodeXL interface.

Great demo, thanks for posting, Marc.

Any way you could post the sample file Eduarda used so that we see how she set up NodeXL to get these effects?
