Tweets, Christmas and PaperVision3D

I came across a neat little site that uses twitter, keywords and papervision3D with Flash to display tweets relating to Christmas subjects in a 3D environment. Characters hop around a 3D globe based on where their last tweet came from. It’s a nice blend of social networking and flash 3D interactivity. I’ve always appreciated data visualization and 3D animation as separate mediums, but it’s really cool to see the two blending together. I wonder how we might be able to apply something similar to medical eLearning tools or healthcare marketing?
