Hey Dow!

This sounds pretty cool. Protoviz and D3 are great libraries.

If you're interested, you might give Matt Bostock a ping and see if
he'd be interested in coming. He's the author of Protoviz and D3, and
also lives in the area.

I'm not sure what data Noisebridge could visualize, though there's
some talk lately about making a web-of-trust like system to share keys
to the space. Perhaps a force-directed graph of that tree could look
neat.

Cheers,
