A new 3-D web experiment visualizes Wikipedia as its own galaxy.
WikiGalaxy maps the site’s 100,000 most popular pages as if each were its own star, with related pages clustered together, and pages of the same category sharing the same color. There’s even shooting stars, which represent bots, the software programs that automatically update certain pages. Inside the visualization, you’re able to explore each “star” or search for your favorite webpage, and see what other “stars” are nearby.
It’s rad; check it out here.
