[Tweet : nvALT]

Web excursions brought to you in partnership with MindMeister, the best collaborative mind mapping software out there.

Twinword Text Analysis Bundle API Documentation
A great API for sentiment analysis, topic tagging, lemmatizing, and more.
SoundCloud Wall
A fun music discovery tool for SoundCloud.
inessential: How Not to Crash
The first in a great series of posts from Brent Simmons with tips for writing Objective-C apps that don’t crash. Find more of the series in the May archives.
MacID - Unlock your Mac with just your fingerprint.
This is great. An iOS/Mac combo app that lets you unlock your Mac using Touch ID on your iOS device. It also allows you to define custom tap sequences for trackpad-based locking and unlocking.
Hand in Hand Clock
Now that personal timepieces are more ubiquitous than ever, be it a cell phone, a watch, a FitBit… the idea of a wall mounted clock is less useful than ever. This one strikes my fancy, though, and there are schematics available for building your own with a bit of 3D printing.
