aarghspelling.jpgan intriguing matrix-like data visualization showing the online usage of the possible spellings of the word 'aargh'. the data was retrieved by counting all possible Google search results. the 4 corners of the matrix correspond to 4 different extreme spelling cases ('argh', 'arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh', 'aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh' & 'aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh'). high-frequency spellings have a red background (versus white or pink), while red numbers show peak numbers that have significantly higher frequency than their neighbors. the resulting visualization demonstrates that there exist specific high-frequency islands, even way out in the long-word planes.

Also I wonder about dimension of repitition space, as I used just one character, this ones uses two, but maybe more could be interesting..
