Building on the code from Elias Heuninck and ideas from tools for things and ideas, I'm printing 18 variations of ten-cell infinite growth patterns (thanks to Nick Gotts) in Conway's game of life.

You shall know a word by the company it keeps (Firth, J. R. 1957). An interface for navigating through big texts. Very buggy at the moment.
Antipedia is a web-based, free-content encyclopedia that is based on rejected or irrelevant wikipedia content. Antipedia scans wikipedia revision history on content that was added but deleted in a next revision. This page hopes to give an alternative to the usual approach of defining words through saying what it should mean.
