Dictionary of Words in the Wild

Geoffrey Rockwell just pointed me to the Dictionary of Words in the Wild:
a community collection of images of public textuality, specifically words outside of the usual print contexts. We are interested in words that are:
  • In the public view
  • In an interesting context where the location adds texture
  • Visually provocative in some way
  • Part of phrases that add another intersection of meaning
...You can browse the dictionary, upload your own words, and try typing in a phrase that is returned as images
What larks. Worth playing with - will be interesting to see how people are using the API as well.
