Websites as graphs and handwriting calculators

Map out your blog into a pritty pikshur:

    Everyday, we look at dozens of websites. The structure of these websites is defined in HTML, the lingua franca for publishing information on the web. Your browser's job is to render the HTML according to the specs (most of the time, at least). You can look at the code behind any website by selecting the "View source" tab somewhere in your browser's menu.

    HTML consists of so-called tags, like the A tag for links, IMG tag for images and so on. Since tags are nested in other tags, they are arranged in a hierarchical manner, and that hierarchy can be represented as a graph…

I found this over in Joe's archives (the correct visual representation of his blog is here) and thought I'd try it on my own blog:



Apparently I'm a ginormous dandelion. Or my blog is. And it has ripped through the very fabric of the space-time continuum to create a black hole. ... Hmm.

On a completely different note, you know I love handwriting samples and you know I love vlogs but it never occurred to me to combine the two!!!:



Mesmerizing... :)

Redonk, yours is beautiful.

Hm. It's telling me that mine "can't be instantiated". What does that mean?

Poppy Cede said...

Sweets, I doubt you're asking me what that word means so I'll just say I think you don't have the right stuff installed to view it because I can see it just fine. Your graph? Is BEAUTIFUL. Will send it to you in email when it's done.

You know what's funny is when I look at my graph on my blackberry screen, it just looks like a lot of multi-colored poppy seeds. hmmm...
