Word Art – how cool is this?

I only came across Wordle in the last few weeks.

Described as a way of  “generating word clouds from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text”.

There are three ways of doing it – you can paste in your own words or a passage from a book; or enter the url of any blog that has an Atom or RSS feed; or finally, enter the del.icio.us user name of anyone and see their tags as clouds.

I ‘created’ the example above by merely pasting in the url of this blog and hitting ‘Submit’. You can choose from a variety of fonts, layouts and colour palettes. Very cool and very addictive!
