Creating beautiful word clouds
August 13, 2008
I stumbled upon Wordle – which as they like to claim is a “toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide”
They accept anything from free text, to blogs RSS feeds and del.icio.us tag clouds and create stunning looking word clouds from them. The clouds are created based on the similar tag cloud concept, where words that are frequently repeated are shown with more prominence.
Simple idea, small app with a lot of impact. I just wish they had a “Save as jpg” option though. Below is a word cloud I created from this blog. Check Wordle out and let me know what you think.
