Richard Jones' Log: The Color Project

Sun, 22 Oct 2006

This is a fascinating experiment mapping 33,000 English nouns to the colours they are represented by in online image searches.

You'll need to run it in Firefox to have any luck (doesn't work in Konq, even though they use the same Java VM in Linux and also no show in Safari), and sadly you'll need IE to use the advanced "click" feature and context menus. The word search still works in FF though.

All of which leads me to think that the internets are a uniform fleshy pink colour.
