Software Sorting Algorithms and Hungarian Folk Dance

We hope everyone liked the zombies last week. Today we're posting about something near and dear to our hearts, the visualization of opaque software processes made visible through exciting new technologies. Well, in this case, an exciting old technology known as folk dancing.

Feast your eyes on the visualization of the "bubble sort" as interpreted through dance. Gives me all kinds of ideas for in class assignments this coming fall semester!

And if you liked this sorting dance, be sure to check out the full range of "software sorting" made visible at http://www.youtube.com/user/AlgoRythmics.
Thanks to Patrick Bigger who alerted us about this gem.
