    I just discovered this site last night and must say it's pretty damn neat/inventive, and it updates pretty often since 90% that I see there wasn't there last night...then again it's Sunday.

    This is a concept that's been around for a while -- I had first seen it around 1999. The application behind it is supposed to figure out how popular or active each item is and then maps the page to give it a proportionate amount of space.

    This site is doing it for Google News but I have seen others that compare a bunch of websites in the same field.

    It's visually striking but after a while you think, well, what's the point?

          Thanks for your feedback!
          I understand what you are saying. I just think i might be a monomaniac. I have no interest in building in other forms of graphic design. I will probably have a bad time....
