This paper by Eitan Adar et al. is an interesting paper that tries to find correlations between topic event streams generated from blogs and news sites, and try to use one stream to predict the others shape. They use dynamic time warping to map individual segments of the curves such as peak, rise, fall and run.
They explore various ways of visualizing the topic behavior through time.
