Amazing!

(Click on these images)
Found this really amazing site. It's a typographic book/video/music searching site by Amazon.com. Search for any book or video or music on this site, and the results would be typographically displayed, meaning searching for "gemini" in books would build each and every character of gemini with pictures of the search results. And you can click on the letters (of gemini) to zoom into the cover of the books. Very cool programming!...<Read More>.

try to search for something that returns NOT FOUND, example hsss94, the result has links to books that refer Not Found, so it takes a very long time to build the entire image.

Shantanu, Saranyan and Kay:
Yeah, I was totally excited at seeing such programming.

Surya:
Yeah I tried twin-gemini first, for that I got a NOT FOUND image result. It stops only when it has completed the search, and since there could be several thousand results for the search, it looks as though it is never ending.

To Me
Sorry dude, have a lot to write about, but no time. Weekend was gone in my Detroit trip, and weeknights are getting just too busy. Hopefully I should get sometime tonight.

To JV,
Thanks buddy. I try to reciprocate as soon as possible, but with everything going haywire the past few days, it's a bit of time. For this reason, I have started a Blog Labs section.

To Satosphere,
It's a pretty cool site, I monkeyed around a bit and found it pretty interesting and innovative.

To Neelima,
Come on, go ahead and try out that site, type in something and you will realize what we are talking about. Dont let the big words fool you ;-)

To Praveen,
Actually I didnt think about it that way, until you mention it. Cool Idea, indeed. Thanks!

To Mr.Narayanan,
Glad you liked it.

To Anonymous/Padhu,
Thanks for your comment. Do keep coming back and I will try not to disappoint :-)
