Our euclidean notion of space involves 3 coordinates. So does our notion of color, thanks to the 3-band visual system that is factory equipment on many of us. I propose the following:
Assign an initial state to the contents of a web site. The halfbakery might be a good site to start with. This
might entail assigning random positions and velocities to each page, and to each distinct morpheme (essentially, word). Next, you might pump this initial state into a spring based algorithm, or similarly a "particle in a box" model. With either model I would suggest repelling all morphemes from other morphemes and all pages from other pages, while attracting morphemes to pages that contain them. Use [0,255]³ as your "box" for convenient use of XYZ position vectors (once positions of things "gel") as RGB colors.
Using these colors as background colors for content pages might have interesting effects on the evolution of halfbakery culture. Then again, it might not.

Looks like the modeling part is baked. Obviously I must contact these people. [LoriZ, Oct 05 2004]
