MIT put out some software a while back called Haystack, and they just released a new version.

From an IA perspective I am very intrigued, I find these sorts of problems to be great fun to solve, they are the reasons I gained interest in Information Architecture in the first place. My fear, however, is that MIT may have scooped me, that is, they had implemented something similar enough to an idea I had, long enough before I’d be able to implement it, that the motivation for me to do so diminishes rapidly.

I’m not saying that what they have here is an idea of mine, but when you have high-end academic minds edging closer and closer to tackling a problem you wanted to be the first to solve, things get a little tense.

Note to self: cannibalize Haystack.
