Tips&Tricks: Meet Wordle

For someone who's main field of interest is IT , I must shamefully admit that there are still very cool programs out there that, though eluded my attention :)), are well known by almost all of my friends. One such program is Wordle created by Jonathan Feinberg. Wordle is basically a toy for generating "word clouds" from given input text. In these clouds, greater prominence is given to the words that appear more frequently in the input text. What makes it unique is the fact that you can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes and save them as images for the whole wide word to see.
Wordle also has an option for genereting clouds from RSS feeds. Here is are two clouds obtained for two of my posts. Can you guess for which ones? :))
