Visual Wikipedia

Have you ever been on a Wikipedia binge? Where you go from one topic to another in a deep chain of related concepts and "I want to learn more about this?" type explorations.. I definitely have.

A few friends and I teamed up and built a crawler + visualizer for wikipedia that used a rudimentary IDF and page-rank to identify related concepts an gave you a visual way of browsing Wikipedia.

 A proof-of-concept interface we built in Python that lets you click on the nodes to browse, and pulls the first paragraph from that Wiki article as a summary
