Nmap Developers Release a Picture of the Web 125

Posted by Soulskill
from the pretty-pictures dept.
iago-vL writes "The Nmap Project recently posted an awesome visualization of the top million site icons (favicons) on the Web, sized by relative popularity of sites. This project used the Nmap Scripting Engine, which is capable of performing discovery, vulnerability detection, and anything else you can imagine with lightning speed. We saw last month how an Nmap developer downloaded 170 million Facebook names, and this month it's a million favicons; I wonder what they'll do next?"

As this program appears designed to interpret what you want to say based on actual, English-language words, it would be interesting to see how it would handle poor spellers. Personally, I am probably somewhat of a spelling nazi, as I cannot stand how inept some persons (seemingly the younger generation--get off my lawn!) appear to be at spelling. If this is released, I would imagine that poor spellers would either (a) be forced to finally learn how to spell (again, get off my lawn!), or regrettably more likely (b) be frustrated with the program and write off it's inability to correct their own deficiency as a problem with the software, itself.

FTFY.
