Congratulations “sui generis”

An interesting article from Zachary M. Seward at the Nieman Journalism Lab at Harvard U., pointing out how the New York Times has been sifting through its data generated when readers highlight words to look up their definitions. Not only does the Times’ tracking its own data like this show us what the most-looked-up-words are, but also, Seward says, points to the vast amount of user data that’s generated when people interact with websites like the Times.

Makes me wonder what kind of interactivity we might build into FIT…
