Stumbled, rambled or somehow came across this little video representation of what happens when a searcher scans a page of Google search results from Daniel Chudnov's blog- new to me, but I imagine probably one of the established bloggerati. Not knowing a thing about fractal geometry, I perhpas missed some of his reference, but I was struck by the conclusion which aptly showed how meaningless a flat list of references is for enabling interactive search behaviors.

I found this while looking at LibraryFind, an open source federated search product that was developed by the Oregon State University Libraries and is built with Ruby on Rails.
