Cloudy Day

June 19th, 2008

Have you played aroung with Wordle yet? This fun tool has been popping up everywhere the past week, so I thought I’d try it out and see what all the fuss is about. It basically generates a word cloud from whatever text you provide, giving prominence to words that appear more frequently in it. You can play around with all types of setttings, like Font, Layout and Color, creating your own personal tag cloud.

This is what it came up with for my account.:

Pretty cool, huh? I’d love to have a T-Shirt with this on it! I’m not sure what else I’d really use Wordle for, but I can imagine you could create some pretty cool presentation slides with it. If you want to make a cool word cloud yourself, just head on over to the Wordle site.
