Found an interesting site that lets you map any website by type of tags used. I thought it was interesting, but then I'm a bit of a stickler for information design. :eek:

This is MacRumors.com:



and this is my little site:



Here's the link to try yourselves.

Edit: and here's the explanatory post on the authors blog.

I know! Try putting a site into the link - it slowly branches out and is most pleasing. :)

Milano...
so how exactly does it work? does it graph base on the name? the traffic or what... Awwww, it's like watching some sort of microorganism under a microscope, the way it "floats" around like in a petridisk

Sorry, I can't find the page that explains it for some reason, but it maps the different tags i.e. IMG, etc on each site. I'll try and find the page.

edit: it's about the 3rd post down on his blog.

I half-remember a similar thread about a tool that draws flowers based on what a webpage looks like. Does anybody remember the details or can anybody find that thread?
