Mining Yahoo Images for color schemes

I meant to post about this a while ago, but while reading Bruce Sterlings's Beyond the Beyond, I learned about this clever tool for generating color schemes. Given your keywords it searches for the top five images on Yahoo! Image Search and chooses the six most prominent colors from each.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, given "existential type" it just returns different shades of gray – ones even less interesting than Bruce got for "cyberpunk".
