An early preview of +Lynn Root
's new project that we worked on at Science Hack Day this weekend. It's called tissue and visualizes network events on your network in real time. The app runs in your browser and connects to a Twisted server so you can visualize events in a remote network too.
The screenshot shows the open ports on her computer (blue = long lived connection, orange = short lived connection, red = closed connection, circles are fading out) and a visual traceroute of a random connection.
The plan is to turn this into something actually useful. Hopefully this is soon up at https://github.com/econchick/tissue
