Wordle and word clouds

I just stumbled across Wordle in a recent post from the official blog. Worlde is a site which lets you create stylish word clouds from any body of text or web page.

I'm not quite sure how to put this discovery to proper use, but it is a great tool for giving new visitors an idea of what a web site is all about. Here's a cloud representing the most common words on my blog (click to embiggen):

I've no idea why 'pump' should be in there, though.


  1. That is so great :D it's a useful tool indeed, we even used it in translation class :)

    the two funniest words are "pump" and "want" ;p

  2. I had no idea! You should have told me ;)
