a set of artistic visualizations that are based on the IP numbers of online visitors. the main principle is that the numerical values of the IP address is mapped onto the values of red, green, or blue in the RGB space, & onto the spatial positions of the visual elements. the number of times the same IP connects provides additional cues such as circle size, line width & so on.

I often can't find the source to your articles other then the articles which you've written that are similar in nature.

If I am mistaken, could you kindly point me to the references or indicate them at the end of your article?

I agree.. I find it quite difficult/frustrating to find what you're pointing to. On this post I can find it all.

In the above post, having "a set of artistic visualizations" hyperlinked would be the most clear, IMO.. it makes sense to see the piece you're commenting about, not make the reader search high and low.

hi Jeff & Sarven,
in this particular post, the actual link was missing due to a small HTML typo, for which I am sorry.

in all the posts on this blog, the actual link is always on the very last line, in between the straight brackets '[...]'.

this approach is not that much different than the "Read" and "Via" link underneath each post at engadget.com, with some added URL/domain information for clarity & searchability.

I find this layout easier to use than embedding links within the text description itself, as often the reader does not know which link is actually pointing to the work.
