A New President - Wordle

Wordle: A New President

I don't think I've ever posted about Wordle.net. So I thought this word cloud of President Barack Obama's inaugural address yesterday would be a good example.

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.

I hate 'word clouds' especially wordle. Nothing of substance ever comes out of it.

Belgian newspaper 'De Morgen' used a wordle word cloud on their cover the day after inauguration. (they just forgot to credit them...)
