What we learned from 5 million books.

386743707_5c7924e85e_zHere is another great talk from TED called What we learned from 5 million books, worth watching for the graphs alone.

It looks at a new technique of data analysis called n-grams; where you can take a word, or a phrase, and look at its usage over time.

Fascinating and fun stuff.
