The Log sprouts

The picture shows Language Log as visualized by Christine Sugrue's OrganicHTML, which apparently generates a pseudo-plant using "certain elements on a web site; colour, text, images, links, Flash, and primarily the table structure. This is why Flash-only sites or CSS-only sites end up generating rather sad looking plants." Too bad it doesn't get more from the words (look at the sad results from OrganicHTML-ing Language Hat). Christine's blog also led me to revisit Google Fight, where you can watch language duke it out with thought.
