It's  another Summer of Code project here:
http://2006.planet-soc.com/node/248 - Content Recommedation Engine. I
think this engine should clustering nodes around subjects.

I'll do experiments with undirected graphs too. In my humble opinion the
real social networks are directed (for example: famous person, many
in-edge and relatively few out-edge).

I'm going to study his solution to handle large graph-visualizing.

Thanks for the feedback,
