I will remain interested in having others do illustrations and animations for me, in return for ad revenue, but I am working on some myself, to show what I have in mind.
Most interesting to me are animations. On an old page, http://www.SocialTechnology.ca/oldpages/diagrams.html I posted “before” and “after” diagrams of social networks:
What I want to do is create an animation, probably an animated GIF file, to show how the “before” network is changed by some social tech tools to the “after” network.
To do this, I need to create a number of images showing successive stages in the transformation. This can be done using the Python Imaging Library to create the individual image files, then Image Magick to turn them into an animation.
So, that is one thing I am working on. I am also working on Chapter Fourteen of the online book about social tech missions to Africa, at http://socialtechmissionaryorganization.socialtechnology.ca/ — that chapter is turning out to be a lot of work, but should be interesting when finished, probably tomorrow.
