Found today while adding sites to the Link List at the side:

PhyloTaxis, a nifty visualisation thing, that gathers science news headlines and turns them into this geometric flash array.

Surname Profiler. A UCL GIS project which produces a spatial map of the frequency of your surname in the UK. The wonders of GIS! My surname increased in frequency quite dramatically in the last century, and according to this, is pretty much confined to English and (in a minor way) Irish persons – which makes sense, given that Ireland is where my dad’s father’s family are from.

The different categories at visualcomplexity have fascinating topics. I like this one: London Connections, which is a spatial representation of a social network of one person in London.

Am well impressed with the bloggers at ScienceBlogs. Am assuming that joining the hosting service requires some sort of proof of science blogging, which I should get further underway with before knocking on the door.
