I was trying to get my head around who all the players are in the world of Bitcoin, and ended up making a network graph focused around the Bitcoin Foundation (to which most of the players are attached in one way or another).  If you're interested, here's a link:

Very cool, thanks for compiling this. I'd be curious to see how it grows as time progresses.

Of course you realize that you can form this graph around almost any chosen "center". I guess that's what you imply in OT too.  Just saying, before someone spreads "OMG Bitcoinfoundation is the secret evil cartel and monopoly!!1!" FUD.

Thank you for the visualization! Nice to see how it's all connected, and see the names behind the big ones all on one sight!

Thanks for making this, mind if I use it on the anti-Bitcoin Foundation website?

Looks severely out-of-date.

Anyone with a campaign ad in their signature -- for an organization with which they are not otherwise affiliated -- is automatically deducted credibility points.

I've been convicted of heresy. Convicted by a mere known extortionist. Read my Trust for details.

Strange graph.

Here's a slightly outdated org chart, courtesy of David Allen.

It is a collaboration involving thousands of people who perform small roles (e.g.., sharing a blog post on reddit, or offering to facilitate a trade between bitcoins and cash), medium roles (writing the blog post, like in this reddit post, or making an appeal to a merchant to start accepting Bitcoin, etc.) and more involved roles in which at the extreme involves building a bitcoin-based business.

It is entirely reasonable that there would be many associations between these participants, including friendships, investment in each other's ventures, etc.

Outdated information spotted:

"Individual members pay 2.5 BTC per year, or 25 BTC for a lifetime membership.  Founders dues are 10 BTC per year."

March 2013 lifetime membership cost 25 BTC (approx $300)

When I purchased my lifetime membership a few months back, it cost only 0.3 BTC (approx $300)

How long, dear reader, until lifetime membership costs 0.03 BTC (approx $300) ?

Remember Aaron Swartz, a 26 year old computer scientist who died defending the free flow of information.

this needs updating; the rates are fixed in dollar amounts now...not sure about the algorithm is for averaging/updating the fee in bitcoins.
