Communication Nation turned me onto a very cool reference tool called ObjectGraph Dictionary.   It includes several dictionaries including a classical dictionary, computing dictionary, table of elements and a thesaourus.  What’s really neat, though, is that it uses a simple interface to deliver results to the screen as you type the word.  No screen refreshes.  Nice!  Played with that for a while then clicked a little deeper to understand how they did that and it turns out they use Microsoft tools to do that.  Real Nice!

BTW, this more of a proof of concept as it uses rather old data.  Do a search on “Computer” or “Network” to see what I mean.  Pretty funny stuff…
