I'm intrigued by the Visualizing Synonym Chains by Andrei Munteanu & Anjuli Kannan. Indeed, I find myself hungry for a tool that can bridge two words through an elegant network of synonyms. Or if possible try the applet out, though doesn't seem to be running.

I'm an information architect, and the use of taxonometric tools are valuable.
