Word Play

Here's a link to help everyone kill time in a semi-literary way.

http://www.wordle.net/

From the site:

"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."

Wordle I: A selection of cut and paste comments I use for teaching Business Communication online.

Wordle II: My resume.

Wordle III: From this blog. This Wordle became a bit "colored" by a Mardi Gras drunken person I quoted.
