Liquidsoap – Swiss-army Knife for Multimedia Streaming
http://liquidsoap.fm/

Our flagship is liquidsoap, a swiss-army knife for multimedia streaming, notably used for netradios and webtvs. It has tons of features, it’s free and it’s open-source! Liquidsoap is a powerful and flexible language for describing your streams. It offers a rich collection of operators that you can combine at will, giving you more power than you need for creating or transforming streams. But liquidsoap is still very light and easy to use, in the Unix tradition of simple strong components working together. Some examples of what you can do using Liquidsoap: 1) static or dynamic playlists; 2) time-based selection of the audio source; 3) quota- or time-based insertions or mixes of jingles; 4) live DJ interventions; 5) interactive user requests; 6) fully-customizable transitions, e.g. crossfading; 7) speech-synthesis of track metadata; 8) simple access to remote files; and 9) and much more!

Visual Thesaurus

Visual Thesaurus
https://www.visualthesaurus.com/

The Visual Thesaurus is an interactive dictionary and thesaurus which creates word maps that blossom with meanings and branch to related words. Its innovative display encourages exploration and learning. You’ll understand language in a powerful new way. Say you have a meaning in mind, like “happy.” The VT helps you find related words, from “cheerful” to “euphoric.” The best part is the VT works like your brain, not a paper-bound book. You’ll want to explore just to see what might happen. You’ll discover — and learn — naturally and intuitively. You’ll find the right word, write more descriptively, free associate — and gain a more precise understanding of the English language. The Visual Thesaurus® is developed and published by Thinkmap, Inc. New York-based Thinkmap, Inc. develops and markets software that uses visualization to facilitate communication, learning, and discovery. They specialize in user interfaces and visualization mechanisms that allow end-users to more effectively browse and understand complex information.

Rank Dynamics – Make Your Search Dynamic

Rank Dynamics – Make Your Search Dynamic
http://www.rankdynamics.com/

Rank Dynamics will transform your search into a more productive experience where fluid result pages respond to user actions in real time. The outcome — more sales. As the quantity of information on the Internet expands exponentially, it has become increasingly difficult, if not impossible, for search engines to provide all the relevant results on page one, while simultaneously eliminating those that are irrelevant. It is furthermore of little use providing millions, thousands or even hundreds of matched documents when few people bother expending the effort to dig past the first page of results. To address these problems, Rank Dynamics has developed Dynamic Ranking, a real-time contextual search technology. By observing user behavior in order to disambiguate intent “on the fly,” Rank Dynamics can automatically bring forward to page one relevant results that might otherwise have remain buried. By transforming traditional static lists of links into dynamic search pages where results are immediately re-ordered, users are able to more quickly and easily find pertinent information buried among the irrelevant results, significantly accelerating the search process. The company, founded in 2006, is headquartered in San Francisco, CA. This will be added to eCommerce Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Social Informatics Subject Tracer™.
