So I found this new toy - Wordle - a while back, but I've only just had a chance to play around with it for myself. Basically it's a tool that creates an artistic looking word cloud from any text you enter. That is, it counts the words in the text and shows the frequency the words by their size in the image. Then it arranges them randomly on the page - and you can change the colors, font, style, etc. - to make it look the way you want it. Above I have a wordle that I created using the text of Barack Obama's DNC speech (I'll explain why later). And this one is a wordle of this here blog of mine. Fun stuff - let's see what you guys can come up with!
