Website news, call for data viz wiz

Hey readers! As many of you have noticed, I haven’t been updating the website much lately. I’m in full start-up mode with a large project. You can check it out at everybit.com. It offers a new way to share information that’s fully secure and decentralized.

One interesting aspect to the project is that everything happens client size, which is to say on the users web browser. Instead of traditional (apache) web logs, we have an event system that tells us how people are using the site. From this, we’d like to create visual reports that show navigation paths. Here’s what the raw data looks like (IP address truncated):

2014-07-25 14:31:08 206.248 {"menu_section":"publish"}
2014-07-25 14:31:09 206.248 {"reply_privacy":"private"}
2014-07-25 14:31:09 206.248 {"menu_section":"publish"}
2014-07-25 14:31:17 206.248 {"menu_show":"true"}

Is there anyone out there willing to tackle the task of creating visualizations for these paths? Should I run a contest to find someone?
