Two colleagues from work told me about this today:.
Wordle is a toy for generating â€œword cloudsâ€ from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text.
There are three ways to create the word cloud:
- Paste in a bunch of text
- Enter the URL of any blog, blog feed, or any other web page
- Enter a del.icio.us user name to see their tags
The wordle cloud above is from the whole of the text of the book of Jude, the penultimate book in the Christian New Testament. Pretty cool, huh!
The site allows you to save wordle clouds to the gallery, where you can also see other wordle clouds created by users, such as those created by me: garethjmsaunders.
