That's a pretty interesting way of visualizing it, best I've seen. Some others...

http://www.sorting-algorithms.com (Interesting animations of all the major sorting algorithms).

Although my all time favourite is GDB + GnuPlot + 3d Array (array index/values/step) plot and stepping through the steps of the sorting algorithm.

They're kind of fun to look at, but I guess I don't really see the point.

What are these supposed to illustrate?
