Capitalist lackeys Dec 12 2010

I’m interested in the ways different words are tied together. That’s sort of the universal feature of this project, so figuring out ways to find them would be useful. I already looked at some ways of finding interesting words for “scientific method,” but that was in the context of the related words as an endpoint of the analysis. I want to be able to automatically generate linked words, as well. I’m going to think through this staying on “capitalist” as the word of the day. Fair warning: this post is a rambler.
