Who is awake?

Who is Awake? is a data visualization that shows the distribution of all the CIID alumni in the world by time zone. Each alumni is represented by a white square. By hovering the mouse over each square, the name and current city of the alumni are displayed.

The yellow circle on top of the time zones represents the sun and therefore the distribution of sunlight on each timezone. By clicking and dragging the sun, you can change the hour and define where midday is. The distribution of light changes accordingly – the yellow area representing sunlight and the darker columns representing night time.

A counter on the top right side of the screen shows the probable amount of people awake and asleep. This dataviz helps you determine what are the best hours of the day to reach a specific person, or see who’s likely awake at any time of your day, so you can reach out to someone on the network.
