treasures from the interwebs – colorful world

While surfing and searching geeky stuff I came across this fantastic site call tag galaxy.

It looks quite boring when you start it but shows its geek factor soon enough. Start by entering a tag of your choice, and the software shows you (in the form of planets) what other tags are connected to your choice.

Click on any planet to add this tag to your selection, I haven’t tested the maximum of tags, it probably ends when you’ve run out of possible connections.

When you think you’re done, click on the planet in the middle and the software starts adding pictures from flickr, compliant to the selected tags, and adds them to an object shaped as a globe.

They didn’t issue a warning “Addictive”, though I think they should have.

I started out with some obvious selections like sunset, which gave me this:

sunsets_2 Next was something for my girlfriend:

dogsAnd it shouldn’t come as a surprise that you can create your own rainbow-world, by playing with the tags lgbt, pride, lesbian and others :-)

rainbowWorld3rainbowWorld4  or going by colors – red, yellow, pink, orange etc.


Wonderful idea :-)

It really is a wonderful way to procrastinate, although I wish it would make more shapes than just globes...

Then again, I mainly like looking at the galaxy of related tags ;-)
