Liquid ASCIIMar 19 2012

It's difficult to describe nkwiatek.com, but I will try to use my words. When you mouse over Nick Kwiatek's site, red ASCII characters explode across your screen like those cheesy Javascript mouse followers with an effect that is as far away from those cheesy Javascript mouse followers as can be. It's really pretty, and it makes me think of a murmuration of starlings.
