Click the screen the toggle between sorting options: discussions shown by time, type of people involved, and place of communication. Additionally, use buttons at the bottom of the screen to add more layers of information.
Next version will scale up the number of comment items in the viz and address visual design issues!

Rotate and move the 3D leaf group via on-screen controls and keyboard commands:
Arrow keys to move leaf group up/down, left/right
'A' moves the group away, 'C' moves the group closer to viewer
'S' stops all movement, while the space bar resets all movement and rotation
'Z' zooms the group back along the z-axis 500 pixels, while 'X' returns the group to its previous z-axis location.
On-screen sliders rotate the group along each axis.
Use the arrow keys to move the solid-color puck around and create collisions with the randomly moving object. Hit the space bar to reset the puck in the starting position. Stats display the speed of the puck, time played, and number of collisions.
Move the mouse to the right to increase horizontal speed. Move the mouse to the left to decrease horizontal speed. Mouse down to increase vertical speed, mouse up to decrease vertical speed. Press any key to reset.
