Topology is a funky subject that involves a lot of complex mental images but is often written in math notation. Nothing wrong with that, but it helps to have a visual aid sometimes and topology is in fact very visual-friendly.
As topology becomes used more in data analysis (see:Ayasdi and others) it is becoming less of an abstraction and more a real tool right now.
My brother's really good at data viz and front-end programming. And I have an MS Math and know topology.

Do you think a site with animations/visualizations for Topology would be really useful or popular?

I don't know how useful or popular it might be, but a lot of my general topology proofs usually involve spatial intuition, so it might be useful to develop the reasoning behind proofs. Not that it's hard anyways.

Hey OP, here's some of what you're looking at. These are from Jeff Weeks, who has a delightful book called "Shape of Space". It's a good light read for the subject.

It's more for learning the subject and not truly for visualizing all sorts of shit, but then again I think you'll have a hard time describing the n-dimensional hole in your n+k dimensional data set that you get from some applied homology algorithm lol.
