2) Theatre--Reviews
The New York Times: Theatre Review Archive
The NYT is now offering free access to most of its theatre reviews back to 1996, plus other "selected reviews" dating back to 1905. You can browse these in a variety of ways -- by title of the play, by year, by critic or by award (Pulitzer, Tony). A special feature on this same page: Unforgettable Plays of the Last Century -- "25 Broadway productions that defined the 20th century and another 100 memorable productions," drawn from The New York Times Book of Broadway. Click on the title links to read reviews of everything from The 3-Penny Opera to Six Characters in Search of an Author. And while you're here, you might want to browse through the Hirschfeld Archive, a selection of Al Hirschfeld's caricature line drawings that appeared in the Times theatre section for 75 years.
Also available: New York Times Movie Review Archive: "Browse or search more than 5,000 New York Times movie reviews. Included in the free review archive are all films reviewed since 1983, reviews of all Best Picture Academy Award winners, as well as a selective list of the 1,000 Best Movies."
3) Web-Based Tools
Web Frequency Indexer
"This page allows you to create a frequency index, or 'word list,' of a text. Paste or type in your text below, and select a sort order [most frequent, least frequent, alphabetical]." You can learn more here. This web tool was created by Catherine Bell, an adjunct faculty member at Georgetown University.

During his career the landscape within law firms has changed significantly, both in terms of technology used and the internal and external factors that are influencing how these firms operate.

  • Click to view the article Big Data Analytics - Are There Still Things that the Software Can't Do?
    Thursday, 10th July 2014

    Where big data is concerned, bosses increasingly prefer relevant insights over simply more of them. As new analytical products continue to appear, technology has its part to play - but a new book from a perhaps unexpected source makes clear that it's the humans who need to have the last word. One blogger's insights into the war in Syria demonstrate the effectiveness of employing brain power to engage in open source intelligence using social media forensics. And you also have to wonder whether it's unduly optimistic to assume that sentiment analytics software will be up to the job yet of detecting sarcasm.
