Dolores Labs has posted an update on how people have used their color name data in various ways. They linked to my own Color Names Explorer - thank you very much ! Their post is called Color flowers, networks, photos, and even 3D and has several more interesting views of this data. The one that really caught my eye was by Chris Harrison who created a flower-like image by rendering the names in their associated color and varying the position by hue along the radius. I don't think many of these images, including my own, are particularly useful, but they sure are interesting to look at !
