Exponential Binary Clock Countdown
This is a fairly simple concept site to try to convey just how enormous exponential growth becomes. It counts to 2^63rd power at 100 increments per second, with notes about what might be happening when that next bit, in this case a square on an 8x8 grid, turns black. Hoping people can use it as a tool to inspire a little wonder in math.

Cool concept, I guess.

Nice. I like the reminder, because exponential changes remain hard to imagine.

Comment on the Mefi thread that's pertinent: the anti-seizure mode should be ON by default.
