Social Network Mapping New Testament Characters

One thing that the folks responsible for the English Standard Version are good at is playing around with new technologies in order to establish curious tools and databases and the like. They have used the data visualization site Many Eyes to create the beginnings of a Social Network Map of New Testament Characters. It is interesting and has pedagogical potential.

I attempted to do the same thing with James the Just several years ago. At that time, all I had was a white board and some dry erase markers. I'd be interested to see how this idea could be used for research and pedagogy.
