Blog blooms

A clever programmer has written an applet that renders the historical traffic on a blog as a graph/emerging bloom. Click here and enter a web address to see other samples. (H/t to Badgerings.)

This specimen is the traffic at this blog -- like its author, wandering off in all directions, some sparking extensions from others. The big exploding blue flower at the bottom of the picture represents the 10,000 people who looked in on Abul Abed, the Lebanese trickster during the Israeli assault on Lebanon last summer.
