We analyze collective discourse, a collective human behavior in content generation, and show that it exhibits diversity, a property of general collective systems. Using extensive analysis, we propose a novel paradigm for designing summary generation systems that reﬂect the diversity of perspectives seen in reallife collective summarization. We analyze 50 sets of summaries written by human about the same story or artifact and investigate the diversity of perspectives across these summaries.
This book, as I explained in the preface to its first edition, published in 1876, is designed to serve and
entertain those interested in the transactions of the Theatre. I have not pretended to set forth anew a formal
and complete History of the Stage; it has rather been my object to traverse by-paths connected with the subject--to collect and record certain details and curiosities of histrionic life and character, past and present,
which have escaped or seemed unworthy the notice of more ambitious and absolute chroniclers.

This volume of stories, composed of historical incidents, or material connected with the history of New Jersey, is not intended to be a record, even in a condensed form, of the rise and progress of the State. The stories are arranged chronologically, but there has been no attempt to give a complete and continuous account of events or epochs. The material for the stories has been collected from many sources; and the selections have been made with regard to the interest, the instructiveness, and as far as possible the novelty, of the matter chosen. There has been a constant...
In all ages, from the remotest antiquity, the story-teller has flourished. Evidences of his existence are to
be found among the most ancient monuments and writings in the Orient. In Egypt, Nineveh, Babylon,

preserved in the Sanskrit. The collection is called Hitopadesa, and the author was Veshnoo Sarma.
This cellar has always made my flesh crawl, now so much more than ever. I shall surely perish from the cold, the damp and malnutrition. Or will death be served by that hideous creature which, at this very moment, causes the entire house to quake, decades of detritus to rain on me, and wary rats to abandon their hungry vigil by my dying self? More than hunger, the rats must be equally driven by their collective desire to avenge the murder of their own. Yes, I killed a few to stall my own starvation, the raw and warm meat tasty;...
This excellent collection of myths and legends in the "oral history" style - either from the mouths of storytellers, or from documents where their words were first captured - presents a wonderful insight into the American Indian spiritual philosophy. The book is neatly organized into chapters from the genesis of the planet and people, through myths and legends emphasizing the social structure, to love stories, warrior myths and on to the final death and afterlife stories.

Programs that can assist in the creation or automatically create trip diaries and stories will considerably
increase use, especially for future viewers who have no idea of the content. For example, a fishing trip
diary with a timeline, animated maps and annotations is substantially more valuable to us and our progeny
than a collection of unlabelled photos in a labeled folder.
New capture devices vastly broaden the nature of personal recording.
