Word clouds

I've seen word clouds before, but today I saw a link to a site where you can make your own: wordle.net. It takes your text and creates a picture where the size of the words indicates their frequency. I wanted to try it out with something fairly long, so I pasted in the text of a talk I gave in church last year on citizenship. Here's the result. (Click to see it larger.)

I also tried it with a talk I gave a few months later on tolerance. (Last year was a busy one for giving talks. They've let me rest this year.)

Pretty fun!

How fun. I have never seen that before! I will try it with Micah's poem!

That is cool! I have never seen one either. My talk would probably have "ummm..." on there really big. :)
