(Web-service) Japanese Analyzer update

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
I added a new light-weight pop-up dictionary to the Japanese Analyzer .
Now in the new version, two links are displayed for each of the words. 'Tangorin' opens in a new window as same as before, while 'EDICT' opens in a small pop-up.
EDICT may be less accurate and less imformational than Tangorin, but I think it's more convenient for the learners who want to go through a sentence quickly.

What you write is what you are interested in. So how about a service which automatically searches others' blog posts that might have the same topic as yours.

My idea is to:
  1. Pick up keywords from the feed of the blog by using the term extraction service of Yahoo.
  2. Then, search the keywords at Technorati and return a list of pages hit in new rss feed.
Result? Not bad. Some articles are indeed of my taste though some are totally irrelevant and I feel there's plenty of room for improvement.

Give it a try if you like. Enter the URL of the feed of your blog, bookmark or anything(RSS 1.0/2.0 and atom 1. are supported) and subscribe to the rss generated based on your feed which will be updated everyday.
