August 16, 2010 -- San Mateo, CA -- WORDNIK.COM, the online dictionary and language resource, today launched a new, smarter online thesaurus that shows related words in context to help writers find the right word quickly and accurately.
Traditional online thesauruses show related words, but ignore context. They don't tell you that people like brownies that are moist but not brownies that are damp, or that it doesn't make sense to moisten your enthusiasm.

Reference Renaissance 2010: Inventing the Future will explore all aspects of reference service and will bring together reference practitioners and scholars to explore the evolving nature of reference.
Quick! You have 5 minutes to tell your colleagues about a great reference program, resource, service, or idea (maybe even about what you think will be the future of reference).
We’re looking for ideas that inspire and engage our students and patrons and make their lives easier and better. Maybe you'll tell us about a new technology that will change the way we do business. Or one that just makes it easier for users to reach professional help at the library.
