<nettime-ann> [ann] state of the union


State of the Union (SOTU) provides access to the corpus of all the State of
the Union addresses by US presidents from 1790 to 2006. SOTU allows you to
explore how specific words gain and lose prominence over time, and to  link
to information on the historical context for their use. SOTU focuses on the
relationship between individual addresses as compared to the entire
collection of addresses, highlighting what is different about the selected
document. You are invited to try and understand from this information the
connection between politics and language­between the state we are in, and
the language which names it and calls it into being.
