Wordle is a new online application for generating “word clouds”– the clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. I simply entered the url of my blog feed and it created my own word cloud based on the content of my posts.
I first read about Wordle on change.gov. The Obama team used it to try to provide insights into all of the online community disucssions on health care. I am not sure of the actual potential for such applications, but it does provide an interesting perspective on content.
Seems as though I may need to reduce the number of posts I publish focused on Viognier and my fondness for Pierre Gaillard’s wines.
