A java applet created using
GUESS should have popped up in a separate window. It shows a network of
phrases occurring in the same blogs. Two phrases share an edge if
their cosine similarity (a weighted measure of the number of blogs that
used them both) is above a threshold. You can zoom in and out by pressing the right mouse button and dragging
the mouse over the display. Mousing over the nodes will give you the names of the blogs.
Mousing over an edge will list the blogs mentioning the pair of phrases in
a text box below (with numbers indicating how many times that blog
mentioned the first and second phrase). Adjusting the slider will place a threshold
on the cosine similarity between the phrases. Checking the box will remove
phrases mentioned by fewer than 5 blogs.
You may need to refresh to get the applet to pop up.
