Lazy Saturday, so a quick & easy retrospective post at a glance. Here’s a “Wordle” look at my blog content going back over the past week. Click to enlarge.
You can use http://wordle.net to create a word-cloud of any content – a website (by URL) or a bucket of words you paste in. I realize word-clouds are nothing new… but I think they’re way underutilized in HCI. Fun for political speech analysis; I can just imagine a newspaper front page that consisted of nothing but word-clouds from yesterday’s speeches by President Bush, Senators McCain and Obama, Biden or Palin, cabinet members, foreign officials, Osama’s latest video, and losing sports-team coaches. “What’d they say?” Well, take a look.
