Guess the Christmas Movie from its Word Cloud – Day 5

On Monday we gave you the first of our Christmas movie word clouds, the second one on Tuesday, the third on Wednesday, the fourth yesterday, and today we’re onto our final one!

We spend a lot of our time searching for movie-related topics and sometimes its hard to tell which terms are most important to the movies we like. So, to spread some our festive cheer, we’ve taken all the words from the dialogue of our favourite Christmas movies and created a series of word clouds. It’s up to you to figure out which movies they’re from.

Next Monday (December 23rd) we’ll compile all of the word clouds into one image so you can print it out and play with your family & friends over the holidays.

Here’s the last one (and quite possibly the trickiest). Let us know us your guess in the comments!

Dublin Web Summit 2013 Review – The Best Talks – Part II

In this, the second part of our roundup of the best of this year’s Dublin Web Summit, we have picked another selection of thought leaders, deal-makers, industry-creators and super-geeks whose talks we found particularly interesting. Like the Rolling Stone top 500 Albums ever, we’re sure we missed some and our choice will no doubt differ from yours, so please paste the links to the video you thought was best in the comments!

The main stage was packed to the rafters, so a large crowd gathered around the Pitch Stage to watch Enda Kenny trying to get Elon Musk to locate Tesla manufacturing in Ireland.

Reputation Inc. – The Value of Social Reputation on the Recommendation Web

Way back in the pre-Google dawn of the 1990’s Internet there was a much heralded approach to web search by a company called DirectHit. The message was simple: paying attention to the words in a document (and query) was not enough to do a good search job, we need to pay attention to the results people select.

To be fair, the first part of this idea – that the words or terms in a query and document were not enough – was accepted by then; at the time a couple of grad students at Stanford were doing some interesting things with links as a result ranking signal for the same reason. But where Boston-based DirectHit differed was it’s emphasis on engagement signals. For instance. the Direct Hit search engine harnessed the searching activity of millions of anonymous web searchers to rank websites based on often searchers selected a page, how long searchers spent viewing it, and where the page was ranked in the original search results list. Ultimately, Direct Hit’s so-called Popularity Engine ranked search results based on a formula that combined a variety of engagement signals to evaluate the page’s popularity. At the time the idea was fascinating and potentially powerful; so much so that Direct Hit was acquired by Ask Jeeves for more than $500m in stock.
