Free association, first page

What happens when people engage in free word association, and do that for over a year?

 

Myla Kent asked Utatans to "just type the first word that comes into your mind". It started with "clementine", because sweet distin had just eaten some. People followed suit, and the thread still grows, after more than a year.

 

There are currently 116 pages of free association in that thread. This is the first page, depicted as a meandering trail. How do you think it proceeded?

 

Discussed in Emergence and in Utata.
