This is a very interesting tool for analysing text and word frequency in text. It enables you to create your own mini corpus and see how words are used in context.
This tool allows you to easily export the concordance lines into a text file. Provided the text was either online or in a text file, it also makes identifying vocabulary words in texts easier. As a corpus tool on the web, I find the option of being able to upload multiple texts into the corpus one of the benefits of the site. But this tool is still in Beta mode, so there may still be some kinks with it that need worked out.

Software development is going mobile, bringing applications to phones, laptops and tablets everywhere, including the classroom.
- Gartner predicts that by 2015 mobile app development projects will outnumber PC application projects by 4 to 1.- Mobile app developers are reaping the benefits of 45 percent year over year employment growth, according to Bloomberg BusinessWeek.
- Dice.com reported a 100 percent increase in job posting for mobile app developers between 2010 and 2011.
A useful site that allows users to dictate and generate text. A great resource for children with writing difficulties to get their ideas written quickly. It works with a range of languages including English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Mandarin Chinese, Japanese and more. For mistakes, the site offers alternative words with similar pronunciation. Only works with Chrome.
This is a useful easy to use tool for creating online magazines with images and video embedded. Not for use by people under 13 years old and they do claim righte to use any images etc that you upload. Still handy for creating a visually pleasing online magazine.
All that meets the eye is not true!!!!
Jinha Lee's Works and Thoughts
MIT has done it again...
Holy Sci-Fi Batman! This is incredible. My head is all over the place imagining what can be done with this technology. This takes interaction to the next level! What is next, being able to assign physical properties to different materials so that they can be "felt" while manipulating them? Could prototypes be manipulated so that "real-world" stresses could be put on them by the actual creator's hands? C'mon man! How could you not LOVE this stuff!?!?!?
Domo Animate, Powered by GoAnimate, is a way to easily create Domo animations and slideshows.
Seems as an interesting variation of GoAnimate

[Note #1 of Olivier Lartillot, curator: It would be great to add more adaptive Markov modeling on top of that. Cf for instance the Continuator project: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ynPWOMzossI]
[Note #2 of Olivier Lartillot, curator: I suggest a short name for the upcoming dedicated website: adlib.it! ^^]
With The Infinite Jukebox, you can create a never-ending and ever changing version of any song. The app works by sending your uploaded track over to The Echo Nest, where it is decomposed into individual beats. Each beat is then analyzed and matched to other similar sounding beats in the song. This information is used to create a detailed song graph of paths though similar sounding beats. As the song is played, when the next beat has similar sounding beats there’s a chance that we will branch to a completely different part of the song. Since the branching is to a very similar sounding beat in the song, you (in theory) won’t notice the jump. This process of branching to similar sounding beats can continue forever, giving you an infinitely long version of the song.
To accompany the playback, I created a chord diagram that shows the beats of the song along the circumference of the circle along with with chords representing the possible paths from each beat to it’s similar neighbors. When the song is not playing, you can mouse over any beat and see all of the possible paths for that beat. When the song is playing, the visualization shows the single next potential beat. I was quite pleased at how the visualization turned out. I think it does a good job of helping the listener understand what is going on under the hood, and different songs have very different looks and color palettes. They can be quite attractive.
I did have to adapt the Infinite Gangnam Style algorithm for the Infinite Jukebox. Not every song is as self-similar as Psy’s masterpiece, so I have to dynamically adjust the beat-similarity threshold until there are enough pathways in the song graph to make the song infinite. This means that the overall musical quality may vary from song to song depending on the amount of self-similarity in the song.
Overall, the results sound good for most songs. I still may do a bit of tweaking on the algorithm to avoid some degenerate cases (you can get stuck in a strange attractor at the end of Karma Police for instance). Give it a try, upload your favorite song and listen to it forever. The Infinite Jukebox.
