Now that I’ve talked in circles for a few days, I thought it would be nice, as a change of pace, to circle back to looking at books as visual maps.
In this next iteration of the interface, you can type in (or highlight by dragging with your mouse) whatever text you want to search for throughout the book. I’ve discovered all sorts of interesting things in the short time I’ve been playing with it.
I’m trying to build up to a more general capability, where you can search for larger patterns, or find relationships between different parts of a book.
But one step at a time.
