Have you discovered Wordle.net?

Asked by hannahsugs (3238points) May 11th, 2009

I just found this cool website, that allows you to make a word cloud out of any text you provide. I put my thesis in! What fun things can you create?

@asmonet I love that sex is the biggest word in your cloud.

Great site suggestion.

@shilolo: That’s odd, I don’t see sex in Asmonet’s cloud at all! What’s going on?

asmonet's avatar

@hannahsugs: Me either, but I wouldn’t mind if it was. ;)

Maybe, to Shi, Culture, Social and Society is all sex.

@hannahsugs click on the word “Boink” in her post.

@eponymoushipster: Yes, I see the word cloud, but the biggest word in it is “Social” or “Culture”, not “Sex”.

@asmonet: I’m glad I’m not crazy. Good point, though! After all, everything comes down to sex in the end, doesn’t it?

Mangeons made me one for Mother’s Day. She put in all the words that describe me and our relationship, printed it out and framed it for me. I lurved it!

Ok, I was just kidding, but I made you all look (I guess I was just extrapolating).

That’s wonderful! Thank you. I can’t wait to play with it.

@shilolo: Thanks for the free publicity, darling. ;P

Cool! I hadn’t heard of this! Here’s mine

I like yours, @DD. I can easily imagine getting hooked on this. What a great toy for wordies!

DrasticDreamer's avatar

Thanks, I like yours, too! :)

@augustlan Oooh, you should use that as a graphic on your flyer! It’s definitely eye-catching!

The first 43 pages of my book.

This is fun!

@augustlan that was so sweet of her!
cool site

Jeruba's avatar

Lurve for that, @fireside.

We should note that the creator of the software claims ownership of the images and requires attribution if you use them in a screen capture (presumably in a published medium, not a Mother’s Day present—but maybe he means that too). And that is fair. This is a brilliant creation and deserves recognition.

Jeruba's avatar

Brilliant, you two. Brilliant.

It was hard to pick a font for this one, but I wound up liking the results, so I’m sharing!

Another because I just love this toy so much:

Annabel Lee

Poe’s use of repetition makes his stuff excellent for this. And that’s my favorite of his poems. :D

More fun with Poe:
The Raven
The Tell-Tale Heart

Jeruba's avatar

Two more and then I’ve got to go do something else.

I thought so, too, @MacBean. I loved the way “The Bells” came out.. “The Raven” is great.

augustlan's avatar

It is a little addicting, isn’t it?

MacBean's avatar

Oh, dear. Despite the fact that it’s one of the smallest words there, “cock” was what jumped out at me from the House That Jack Built one. I fail at not being pervy. :(

Jeruba's avatar

Tch. And I didn’t even notice it. But of course that was the cock that crowed in the morn, that waked the priest all shaven and shorn, so I thought nothing of it.
