“Visuwords turns the dictionary into a neural network; it’s the perfect interface for writers, readers, and anyone who’s curious about the English language.

Type your word into the search bar, and watch it pop up in the center of your screen. Shooting off in all directions are other, associated words. Click on those words, and open an entirely new set of words and meanings. The site — which taps into Princeton University’s WordNet database — is the most fun we’ve had with a dictionary since looking up naughty words in grade school.” – – VSL

The world record for domino-toppling was set four weeks ago, in the Netherlands; it involved the use of 4,079,381 tiles, and took two months to set up. The Drawminos website won’t consume that much of your time — unless you want it to.

The site’s click-and-drag dominoes couldn’t be easier to set up, and the advantages of working online couldn’t be more obvious: Accidental knockdowns are a thing of the past, and shaky, overcaffeinated hands are no obstacle. When you’re done, you can give your setup a title (complete with its own URL) and invite your friends to topple it for you.” – – VSL

The analysis indicates that the author of http://www.jhcckkm.wordpress.com is of the type:

ESFP – The Performers

The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells. They live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead – they are always in risk of exhausting themselves.

The enjoy work that makes them able to help other people in a concrete and visible way. They tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation – qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions.
