About this Blogsphere:

This blogsphere attempts to capture, catalog and share resources relating to visual perception of information. It is about a world mostly dealing with Physical (Touch, Taste, See/Sight, Smell and Hear) and sometimes Metaphysical (and that is none-of-the-above category). Physical, for instance, touch (e.g., feel, felt, found), look and visualization, is here with an attempt to combine verbal, vocal and visual--to synchronously see, hear, share and do much more. Interestingly, in order to visualize one does not need special skills, competencies, etc. It is all about common sense, especially with human visualizations. In short, "information is in the eye of the beholder." Continue reading much more all-ado-about this Blogosphere

DontClick.it - Web Usability Visualized

dontclick.it - Institute for Interactive Research

"Navigate the Web in a different way..." Thanks The Addled Librarian for this link.

Here's a bit more info on the site:
The site's technology also allows the developers to keep statistics that will inform them about how many users can actually resist clicking while visiting the site.
"We do not only record the site visits. With every visit the first click that happened will be recorded as well. The relationship between these two numbers tells us, whether people can resist to click within this interface, or, if they just click the next thing that looks like a button because they are determined by their clicking habits."
Check it out, and see how long you can resist the temptation not to click. Thanks to Capulet Communications for this visualization
