Fun with Wordle

I love this visualization toy, Woordle at http://wordle.net/, and as it turns out, I use the word “love” quite a bit. That and “really.” Who knew? :)

It’s quite fun to make a Wordle because of the animation you see while the word “cloud” is added to, so I highly recommend trying it for yourself. You can change the colors and fonts. Here’s the Wordle based on my blog:

I also enjoyed reading the backstory of Wordle’s creator – he works for IBM and created Wordle in his spare time with his employer’s approval. Neat!

    I love Wordle too. It’s neat to use famous speeches too, such as MLK’s “I Have a Dream.”

    Oh that’s a great idea! I went to lunch with a fellow tech writer last week who used it on one of her grant proposals just for fun. :)

    I used the feed from my blog and found I say COFFEE and STARBUCKS a lot. Makes it hard for me to kick the habit. LOL!

    It’s also great to see he’s using Ray Larabie’s Fonts, from right here in Vancouver.
