I continue to be amazed by all the really interesting applications of creativity making information more engaging, accessible and interactive. This application (via infosthetics.com) allows you to visually identify word patterns and themes in presidential State of the Union addresses going all the way back to Washington. A really fascinating journey through time (and cultural spin). Take a look at themes around crises periods across time and see how the language changes. Perhaps we can take lessons in leadership and persuasion from more successful presidents in that they clearly changed the language and tenor of the national debate of their day. This stuff almost makes me want to go back to college just for the pleasure of it.
