How is this done?

I very much like the people ranker here on the Eat The Press blog; anyone got something I can use to replicate it, or is this some impressive flash / googlefu that us mere mortals wouldn't be able to replicate?

Best answer: The first result for googling "flash 3d graph remoting" is pretty close.

at the bottom it says powered by google blog search. i clicked on that and typed in hezbollah and got 849 hits in the last week. i can't figure out where they get 2,269 from.

Thanks Mathowie - would you believe I googled and googled and couldn't find anything remotely similar to that.

I think "remoting" is a key search term there. I've not seen it used as a verb.
