Having lots of fun with Wordle


Wordle is a Java web application that intelligently generates gorgeous word clouds from text you provide, sans common English words. It can be an RSS or Atom feed from a website, a generic webpage or even just a slab of text you enter in yourself. It is a brilliant way to visualise what someone has been talking about.

My RSS feed for the Rubenerd Blog is configured to share the last 40 items, so this is a Wordle for these said items:
