computational linguistics goes mainstream

Amazon continues to amaze me. Searching today (via A9) for a book by Jamshid Gharajedaghi, I find six "statistically improbable phrases (SIPs)" flagged. I've not yet read Gharajedahi (he was cited by New Zealand design consultant Michael Symthe), but it would seem that the author enjoys spawning new phrases. One can see who else uses these phrases, and whether they predate or follow the use by the author. With a bit of digging, one can trace the diffusion of concepts. Such a pattern matching feature is not a "new" concept, but it is very exciting to see it in the mainstream.
