ATS Picks 9/23/10

1. NewsMap's objective is to simply demonstrate visually the relationships between data and the unseen patterns in news media. News map also allows to compare the news landscape among several countries, making it possible to differentiate which countries give more coverage to, for example, more national news than international or sports rather than business.

2. Create your own “word clouds” using Wordle.Net The clouds give greater promnence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. As an example, here is: a Word Cloud Analysis of Obama's Inaugural Speech Compared to Bush, Clinton, Reagan and Lincoln's.

3. Jeff Utecht- Moving from Consumer to Producer of Knowledge.
