Another month has coming to a close. It seems that time just keeps going by faster and faster. Summer has finally set in here and I am trying to keep cool without air conditioning. Once it hits the high 90’s with 90% humidity, I may have to turn it on. But for now I’m trying to conserve money and energy.
Wordle is an online java based utility used to generate word clouds from text. The word could can be created from a block of text that you input, as RSS feed and from the tags used in a del.icio.us account.
The word clouds can not be saved to your computer but can be saved to the online gallery, printed or you can take a screenshot of your word cloud.
The word clouds can be customized by font, layout and color. The results are really quite beautiful
The following are screenshots I took of word clouds that I created over the weekend.
