Word Clouds - by Brad

I stumbled across a time-waster website at http://www.wordle.net/ where you can make your own "word clouds". All you have to do is paste some text, and it will make a word cloud based on the frequency of the words. It is surprisingly simple, but also customizable.

I tested it out by pasting the full text of Fox in Socks by Dr. Seuss...

Wow, Brad. I like the Fox and Socks word cloud. I am not sure what I would ever do with it, but it is very fun. I also like that you chose that particular book.

Amazing. That would be interesting to put someone's actual spoken language into - and found out what words are most used. Well, maybe it would embarrass us!!
