so cool...

This is the coolest thing. Maybe I'm slow but I just discovered Wordle. You paste in some text and then it generates a "word cloud". You can change fonts and colors and redo the design over and over 'til you get something you like. It will make words (that are repeated more than others in the text) bigger than others so you can force it to emphasize some words more than others. So cool. And they say you can use the "clouds" that you create in any way you want to -- you can even make money with them by printing on t-shirts or using in designs you sell in different ways.

Here's another one using the text from my blog post about my dog Duke a few weeks ago.

Exactly what I thought too Marianne! Be sure and let me know about it if you use "word clouds" somehow in a piece. I think they are so fun!
