In 15 minutes I wrote a three dozen line
bookmarklet<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bookmarklet>in javascript to
scrape P2PU website user
pages <http://p2pu.org/en/Philipp/> for the "following" relationships
starting from an initial set of 20 "active this week" users listed on the
home page. I then wrote out the GraphViz <http://www.graphviz.org/> file and
rendered it using the Neato layout engine. When I get another 15 minute bock
of time I might use canviz <http://code.google.com/p/canviz/> or
Had I described my work in the context of "standup" I might not have run
afoul of the being off declared topic.

In any event the numbers I reported and the published number of ~1000
"members" is more reflective than the 20,000 statistic.
