WiX Working Group video, the sound of sorting.

K, Reid and I are playing through Halo 3:ODST on Legendary. Its my attempt to keep in touch with a couple of the original developers on the WiX toolset since our paths don't cross much any longer. Over chat, Reid mentioned a video he saw recently where someone assigned sounds to swaps and recorded the results of various sorting algorithms.

I found a couple videos and they were pretty cool. The first video has a bunch of algorithms but my favorite is the heapsort which is second. Check ‘em both out.

Another fun visualization for sorting.
