I stumbled across this excellent version control visualization tool called Gource, which visually shows the development history of a given project as derived from Git/SVN logs. I of course immediately pointed it at my local copy of the bitcoin/bitcoin GitHub repo and recorded/uploaded the resulting video. Of course I realized immediately after I finished the whole process that I forgot to pull new commits and the copy I’ve got on this PC is a few months old, but still it’s an interesting visual glimpse into Bitcoin history. Video after the break.
Points of interest include 1:57, the first appearance of Gavin Andresen (July 2010) and a furious explosion of development at 4:27 (April 2011)
