For Colleagues with Digital Cameras: the Dictionary of Words in the
Wild (beta)

The Dictionary of Words in the Wild is an experiment in public
textuality that collects images of text into a mashable dictionary.
For this experiment to work we need lots of pictures of words.

I suspect many Humanists have collections of images of words or
phrases taken around the world. If you are willing to contribute
them, sign up for an account, upload the pictures and tag them.
Alternatively you can experiment with the API and build web
applications that call the dictionary for word images.

Try it, get an account and upload your words,

Geoffrey Rockwell
