An episode in which a word cloud is created, for no good reason.

wordle.net word cloud from RSS

Wordle.net word cloud generated from our blog RSS feed.

I was turned on to Wordle.net when a colleague used it as  the opening slide of a presentation. Since then I’ve used it to create word clouds from various documents and papers I’ve written, mostly for fun, but it does give you an idea of the frequency of words used in a given document. There is a feature to create a cloud from a blog feed, and that’s what you see on the right. Again, this is just for fun, and I really should be doing something else, but I was curious what we were writing about, and it’s mildly surprising.  Enjoy, and stay tuned for more tales from the mighty Choptank. We sail at midnight and should have gear in the water by dawn.
