FilePhile – Secure Unlimited File Transfers
http://www.filephile.net/

Secure unlimited file transfers with any computer, any file, any size, anywhere with professional grade encryption. Features include: 1) Unlimited: Transfer unlimited numbers of files of unlimited size. (Users have transferred tens of gigabytes!); 2) Easy to Use: FilePhile is as easy to use as an instant messaging client. It’s like an instant messaging client for files. Just add another FilePhile user to your buddy list and then drop a file or directory onto their e-mail address. That’s it; 3) Direct: Files go directly from your computer to the recipients, which is both faster and more secure. This is also why FilePhile can be free, since it means that we don’t have to actually handle file data; 4) Private and Secure: Absolutely private and secure, with professional-grade end-to-end encryption! They can’t even see what you’re transferring! Great for trade secrets, confidential presentations, medical data (HIPAA), legal documents, or anything else that must remain safe from prying eyes; 5) Bullet Proof: Transfers just keep going and going, automatically resuming when temporary problems occur. Just send a file and forget about it! FilePhile recovers from crashes, reboots, sleep/wake, and even changes in network location. You can start a transfer at home, pack up your laptop, go somewhere else, and the transfer will resume when your laptop comes back online; 6) Cross-Platform: Got friends or co-workers who use Windows, Linux, Macintosh, or even more obscure operating systems like FreeBSD? No problem! FilePhile can run on almost anything; and 7) Absolutely Free: The basic client is absolutely free, and a professional version with enterprise features is on the way. Free also means no nefarious hidden “costs.” They don’t sell e-mail addresses to junk mailers, bundle spyware with our product, or violate your privacy.

Jigsaw – Visualization for Investigative Analysis
http://www.cc.gatech.edu/gvu/ii/jigsaw/

Investigative analysts acquire clues and connect small bits of evidence to uncover larger plans, stories, or narratives. Often, the individual bits of evidence are short text documents, and analysts must examine large collections of such documents in order to “put the pieces together” and formulate a well-supported hypothesis about actions that may occur in the future. As the number of documents to examine rises, it becomes more and more challenging for analysts to uncover the embedded plans. They are creating Jigsaw, a visual analytics system to help analysts better assess, analyze, and make sense of such document collections. Their specific objective is to help analysts reach more timely and accurate understandings of the plot(s) embedded throughout textual reports. Jigsaw provides a collection of visualizations that each portray different aspects of the documents. They particularly focus on presenting the identifiable important entities (people, places, organizations, etc.) and their direct or indirect connections. Textual processing extracts the important entities from the documents and then the visualizations help an analyst to explore the relationships and connections among the entities. The system includes graph, calendar, scatterplot and and tabular connections-based views, as well as views of individual document’s text and the report collections as a whole. Jigsaw essentially acts as a visual index onto the document collection, helping analysts identify particular documents to read and examine next.
