Wordle: Make beautiful textclouds…

Wordle - del.icio.usly kevin

Via Clay Shirky’s twitter, I had discovered the most beautiful textcloud generator I’ve ever played with. Straight from Wordle’s mouth…

Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.

To generate a textcloud of your own, simply paste a body of text, your blog’s RSS feed, or your delicious username (like mine shown above), and away you go. I’d say it’s a great way to spice up that presentation of yours, or even turn into a poster of t-shirt.

I wonder how else we could use this.
