And then THIS article popped up on Twitter (isn't social media grand?)
The definition of a website was once straightforward. Today, it mean a design service, data viz tool kit, or collaboration platform.
Which includes a piece on IBM's Watson!
Watson News Explorer
It's difficult to comprehend the vast amount of news online, but this IBM-built platform organizes it into a clear graphic interface. The landing page shows hot topics being discussed around the web; enter a search term and see the internet's offerings clustered into word clouds - or view results as a geographic map or timeline.
Watson News Explorer makes it easier to navigate the onslaught of information on the internet. It begins at the landing page, which offers an array of hot topics being explored and discussed; from there, smart visualizations (think wordclouds) are organized by specific search terms and related topics, and results can be viewed in geographic maps and timelines to get a different perspective on their relative importance.
