To the discussion I'd add that there are other models for this kind of 
work that have been around for a while. Katy Börner's work at Indiana 
University to map knowledge domains springs to mind:

http://ella.slis.indiana.edu/~katy/research/index.html#VisualizingKnowledgeDomains

- and some graphics -

http://www.asis.org/Publications/ARIST/Vol37/BornerFigures.html

I believe this work includes developing systems for authoritatively and 
unambigiously identifying researchers to avoid duplicate, if not bogus 
entries.

Perhaps not Web 2.0-ey enough?
