My wife just said, "What a Nerd!" Yup, that's me! I am sitting at my computer, eating a frozen pizza, and looking at a cool new software application (Shared Word Diagrams). Okay ... why do I think this is neat? Let's examine the data:
- I was not an English major (I do like to read)
- Researching document differences visually is intriguing
- Expand the thumbnail to see my example
I thought ... what better way to try out this application than by comparing a Web 2.0 application with it's Web 1.0 counterpart, and the resulting overview of the original bard himself? Seriously, if you had never thought of graphically comparing documents, you must spend some time on Neoformix Blog. In addition, link to the Neoformix Document Arc Diagrams to view examples of Alice in Wonderland, The 2007 State of the Union Address, and a Hard Rain is Gonna Fall (Bob Dylan).
Quite frankly, I haven't quite yet figured this application out. If you try an example, be patient. It can take a while for the results to appear. Once you create a comparison, while connected to Neoformix you can click upon words to further explore the relationships. It's interactive.
