Wordle: A visual representation of key words

Marilyn ran across this on the Internet, and thought you might enjoy looking at communication from a slightly different perspective.

Description from wordle.com: “Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.”

You can use this to analyze your blog, an article that you’ve written, or any other piece of writing. It’s a good way to visualize what subjects you’re emphasizing, and what subjects you’re not talking about enough.

Have you come across any information that you’d like to share?
