We’ll be using this tool (and this map) tomorrow in class:
For future (i.e. Tuesday) reference, here’s the map that I created for “Sexy”:

Someone wrote to ask if they might use some of the visualizations generated in this afternoon’s class as part of their DH definition response. The answer is an emphatic yes! In fact, it is such a good idea that I have decided to implement a “picture is worth 100 words” bonus– that is to say, if you are able to incorporate one of the visualizations from class (or one of your own devising) into your blog post, it can be 100 words shorter than previously specified– i.e., 200-300 words instead of 300-400. I’m very eager to see what you turn up!
