Genealogy of Influence
Just thought this was interesting
Genealogy of Influence allows you to visually trace the connections between the most influential writers, artists, philosophers, scientists, and mathematicians of Western culture. You can pull up a short bio (stripped from Wikipedia) by hovering over a personís name, or click through to the full Wikipedia article. I also made a colorful hierarchical image of the same data.
