Nifty word clouds

  03/05/11 13:39, by jsignal, Categories: random ramble

Today, while wasting time on the Internet when I should have been working, I came across a nifty "toy" that creates "word clouds" from whatever text you give it. For example, below is a word cloud of my graduate thesis. The bigger words are the ones that appear more frequently in the text. You can try it out yourself at www.wordle.net. And for fun, see some word clouds of books of the Bible in this Youtube video. Alright, now ... get to work.

Heh, cool! That’s your thesis all summed up, huh? : )

COOL! I’ll have to try that out sometime if I can find something I’ve written.
