It’s often said by detractors and obfuscates that “there is no demand for content mining”. It’s difficult to show demand for something that isn’t widely available and which people have been scared to use publicly. So this is an occasional post to show the very varied things that content mining can do. It wouldn’t be difficult to make a list of 101 things that a book can be used for. Or television. Or a computer (remember when IBM told the world that it only needed 10 computers?) Content mining of the public Internet is no different.
