Kinda cool. See a matrix of the biggest sites and how they are connected/linked.

Thanks for that. Wish it weren't so sluggish, but it was interesting to play with nonetheless.

On an unrelated note, except that this is also just plain cool, see what Andrew Sullivan (http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_daily_dish/2009/07/chart-of-the-day-3.html) called "the chart of the day (http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2009/07/02/business/economy/20090705-cycles-graphic.html)."

Actually, it's a series of nine animated slides, and well worth your time, if you're at all geeky, and especially if you liked looking at phase space plots in writings about chaos theory.

Nice. That was pretty bad-ass!! Especially watching them "race" at the end.

That is AMAZINGLY COOL!!!!11!!!1!!!1 I read a lot about chaos/complexity and to see one of those phase space trajectories in action is pretty exciting. Now if only I had gotten more out of my reading in complexity I could tell you what it means ...
