[TIPS] visuwords, the graphical dictionary

http://visuwords.com/

Thanks to Sue S for sharing this one with me. This is along the lines of visual thesaurus that I mentioned one time. (http://www.visualthesaurus.com/) But it's very cool. Send this to your English teacher friends. Enter a word, say, imagine, and watch it draw connections to other works, ala Inspiration. Double click on one of the bubbles to expand it further. Click and drag the mouse to pan and zoom in using your mouse wheel. I can see lots of uses for this, can't you?
