According to favcol, the background of this text block is Flickr’s favourite colour (as of 9:00 PM Pacific) — a sort of medium, warmish taupe.

How does it work? Every few minutes, favcol searches for new photos tagged with "favcol." Photos are then analyzed for the average colour, all the averages are averaged and voila, Flickr’s favourite colour.
