Custom data parsing for this work was done, and is available as an Observable notebook. Additional metadata about number of Stars and Forks of every block was also added.
The ending animation displays 2021 dots, each of which represents a block. These are the most loved (Stars + Forked) blocks since 2010. The connections between the blocks represents their common authorship. The color of a dot is the prominent color used in that particular block as made available in the dataset. Click on any of the dots or connections to see their underlying block or author respectively.
The colors representing every year are the respective Pantone® color of the year.
