WordNet - a large lexical database of English

WordNet® is a large lexical database of English, developed under the direction of George A. Miller. Nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs are grouped into sets of cognitive synonyms (synsets), each expressing a distinct concept. Synsets are interlinked by means of conceptual-semantic and lexical relations. The resulting network of meaningfully related words and concepts can be navigated with the browser. WordNet is also freely and publicly available for download. WordNet's structure makes it a useful tool for computational linguistics and natural language processing.

Democratic Underground

Democratic Underground would not be possible without the participation of like-minded individuals from across the country and, indeed, from around the world. The content for the site is provided by people who feel that their views are not represented by the conservative "mainstream" media in the U.S. We accept article submissions from those on the left who wish to write, so that DU represents a variety of progressive viewpoints. We have a particular appreciation for satire and humor.

I Believe: The CTV Anthem For The Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games


 

Drew Curtis' FARK.com

The first year Fark received 50,000 page views. That's a respectable number for a site started from scratch. The second year it was a million. The number one highest-traffic corporate Internet hitting Fark's servers was CNN. Number two: Fox News.

What is Fark exactly? Fark is what fills space when mass media runs out of news. Fark is supposed to look like news... but it's not news. It's Fark.

Advertising for Love

A COLLECTION OF FUNNY, STRANGE, POIGNANT AND JUST PLAIN BIZARRE PERSONAL ADS FROM THE NINETEENTH CENTURY.

I'm a PhD candidate in history at Rutgers University, on the verge of completing my dissertation, which is about the transformation of love and marriage in the mid-nineteenth to early-twentieth century in America. I'm using old personal advertisements to talk about this transformation, and I've found them so charming and fascinating that I want to share them with anyone who's interested in learning more about the history of personals.
