Dear colleagues,

I would like to invite you all to check out the updated version of
the Dictionary of Words in the Wild:


For those who haven't come across it, the Dictionary is a social
image site where users can upload images of public (wild) textuality
which can then be accessed through a dictionary interface, search, or
API. Thanks to participants like Willard McCarty we now have over
3000 unique words in over 2000 images.

We now have some new features:

1. Registered users can comment on the images of words uploaded.

2. For those who are interested we have a statistics page where you
can generate statistics.

I encourage all of you with digital cameras and an interest in the
words around you to participate.
