Fun Friday: make a Wordle word-cloud!

Here's a bit of fun for your Friday (with a hat-tip to Lee and Louise for reminding me of this great tool). With wordle you can generate “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. Here's one I made from the RSS feed of the tmc blog.

It's interesting to see which words are more prominent. Try it out on text of your own!

As a way to keep things in perspective, I like this wordle. Called "Childs play" it's simple, to the point, and should remind us all that life used to be a lot less complicated...
