OpenWIMs is all about defining standards in semantic processing and providing open source implementations of semantic text analyzers and semantically rich knowledge resources. The blog at discusses both theory and practice of semantic analysis of text. WIM stands for "weakly inferred meaning" and is a product of semantic analysis that relies heavily on knowledge driven macrotheories, with support from stochastic microtheories. Check it out at


SwingFTFY is a small library of extended Java Swing widgets - many modern UI components have features that are now missing from the stock Swing implementations (such as hint text in text fields, or close tab buttons on tabbed views). SwingFTFY extends the stock widgets and adds functionality. This is a personal project that I add to from time to time as needs arise. Feel free to grab the source from Google Code.
