Today, Jonathan Hope introduced us to the tools made by the Visualizing English Print project, beginning with Ubiquity, a tool that allows you to perform word frequency calculations resulting in a csv file as well as to create html pages of your plain-text files that visualize the occurrence of the word.

You can see the lineup of amazing speakers at the DLF sitehttp://www.diglib.org/archives/8808/
