State of the Union visualizer

screenshot from the state of the world visualizer

Brad Borevitz's State of the Union visualizer lets you browse through every US presidential State of the Union addresses from 1790 all the way up to the present. For each address common words are displayed with the size showing how many times they were used in the speech and the height on the graph showing the word's significance as compared to other speeches. The visualizer also tracks speech length (Jimmy Carter had a lot on his mind in 1981) and grade-level of each address.
