Seed‘s daily science news aggregator, phylotaxis.com, has been nominated for a Webby Award in the category of ‘Best Navigation/Structure.’
Designed for Seed by artist Jonathan Harris, phylotaxis is based on the mathematical elegance of the Fibonacci Sequence, and the ordered growth of leaves on a plant stem. The appearance of the phylotaxis represents the integration of science’s rationality and order with culture’s energy and unpredictability. Result? A stunning visual arrangement continuously gathering and transmitting science news as it breaks on the web.
Bestowed annually since 1996, the Webby Awards honor what’s exceptional and high-quality on the net: Time magazine has called Webbies “the Online Oscars.”
Your vote can help phylotaxis make a splash on the digital red carpet.
