Phylotaxis, created by Jonathan Harris for Seed magazine, is "an exploration of the space where science meets culture." In other words, a groovy Flash visualization of photographs, "quivering with Brownian Motion." (more info)

So, why is the science side square and boring, while the culture side is all chaotic? I would have swapped them.

I was hoping someone would link this up. I just completed construction on, which is MT-based, and is the source of all my MT-based questions in AskMe :)

Beware -- the mini-phylotaxis (on has tendency to peg the CPU in FireFox/Mac... Jonathan can't seem to nail down the problem, so watch out until a static version goes up.

Ditto on anomie's op ed. ...I got an issue for free, somehow. Maybe God loves me so much he wants me to stop believing in him?

But honestly this is an awesome project, and I hope Seed continues to succeed where SciAm fails [i.e. being largely irrelevant for the bulk populous].
