Drifting on a network of words

Do you often find yourself drifting away from a conversation or reading or anything when a word catches your attention and reminds you of something else? Possibly another word and something related to that, right? Maybe not exactly, but close. If this is true to everybody, it only makes sense for our dictionary to assume a more connected structure, right? (Hmmmm, encouraging drifting?) well, now you have such a dictionary, a dictionary that will give you a local network of words for an entry. How cool is that? Different colors indicate different types of words (nouns, adjectives, etc) and different line types indicate different relations (synonyms, and antonyms).
