Interesting, not sure what to do with it exactly but I found myself mesmorized for a little while.

I find this concept to be interesting. I find their application to be lacking.  

The graphic/ analog flow through the various links of the web is interesting, very interesting.  I think it will be useful for people who are not used to searching the web in other ways. So it might be useful to a few people who are used to thinking geographically/ analog, but to those of us who think digitally or were trained in library organization (which most of us older adults were... even though we don't realize it - hence the success of Yahoo with older users) it is not functional.

Library organisation... I would hate to have to know the Dewey Decimal number for a website before I could do a search for a given term.

That was indeed mesmorising. I couldn't find the site I was looking for though. Good old Google for me.

But it is fairly easy, because you would simply put in the three digit code for the general subject and sub subject via the code, then the catalog of every website in that subject area would then pop.  Of course the decimal additions would be down to the forth or fifth place to keep the million or so pages in line.
