Wordle

If you haven't seen it yet, Wordle is a program lets you throw a bunch of text into their site's engine, and it turns it into a cool-looking word cloud. It gives greater prominence to words used more often, and you can personalize the shape, color, and style however you want.

You can also just type in a site's web address and have it do all the work for you.

Here's mine:
Wordle: Ten-Four, Good Buddy

Turned out to be a little bit too close to the Grammys post, so I went back through it by hand. Came out pretty good, I think.

I did some of your sites, too. Here's Assistant Village Idiot:

Weird coincidence. It's the feature on "Web English Teacher" as a teaching strategy and I was toying with the idea of having the students create one once they finish their current novel. Pretty nifty.

It's like a resume of my head. Cool.

Hey, should I be signing up for this fanbase.com? What is it?

Did I ever send out the link for that? I don't remember mentioning the work I did for that.
