Dropbox Raising Massive Round at a $5B-Plus Valuation | TechCrunch.

“A billion is the new million” — great comment! Too true.

Dropbox is a great service (even with their TOC caveats), but $5B-plus??? That’s nuts!

OT/NT Refs: Source code now available on GitHub

July 9th, 2011

If you’re interested in seeing the code for the OT/NT Ref graph, I’ve posted it to GitHub: balinjdl/OT-NT-Reference-Map – GitHub. All source files are there, along with a README, LICENSE, and sample graphics. I’ll continue posting about the development here, but code changes will only be updated on GitHub. Enjoy!

OT/NT Refs: Development log, entry #5

July 8th, 2011

otnt-rev8Completed

  • Added layers (Quotations, Allusions, and Possible Allusions are all on separate layers, independently controllable (see below), as are the book arcs);
  • Added panning (click-and-drag to move);
  • Added keyboard event handler (to toggle visibility of layers (“q”/”a”/”p” for 3 link layers, “b” for book arcs, “c” to recenter view*, and “r” to reset view to initial state*);
  • Added zoom (“+” and “-” to zoom in and out, respectively)

ToDo

In priority order:

  • Add book labels
  • Fix intermediate point calculation
  • Post code to Github
  • Add basic interactivity [zooming & panning]
  • Add advanced interactivity [to show links for a specific book (a la http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2007/12/15/us/politics/DEBATE.html)]
  • Add columns for each chapter (why?)
  • Add mouse scroll wheel zoom handler
  • Add the allusion links and possible [allusion] links
  • Set up correct Z-order (handled by order of function calls)
