Rose Diagrams

Rose Diagram

I love Mathemagenic's "Rose Diagram" of the blogosphere. It depicts each weblog as a node, and then traces the interconnections between them. The blogs with the most interconnections gravitate towards the core of the rose. With those marginally associated with the community placed on the outer rim.

I've always wanted to apply this kind of model to the Art Star economy of New York City. Would personal connections dominate professional ones? If you plotted Brooklyn's and Manhattan's nodes separately, how much would they overlap? Would James Murphy and Gavin McInnes be plotted towards the core? Would I be on the map at all?
