Nearly 5,000 people have declared their allegiance, with Reddit in the lead at 2,536 declared players.  Declaration isn’t everything, though, as you can see in the chart below. When we compare allegiance with actual gameplay, the numbers change significantly. For example, Team Twitter had a slight 1% of total declarations at 66 players while their team members represents 25% of actual game players.

Neuron volume is the metric for world domination — that is, winning The EyeWire Games.  The number of cubes spawned per team is a close indicator of this volume and is therefore useful to estimate progress. You can calculate this number at any time by clicking “change cell” and adding “Current size” of your team’s active and completed cubes.

After 48 hours, it appears that Team Facebook is in the lead, having mapped 784 cubes.
