A Cool Site

                    TEXT CLOUDS
                                       Create Your Own Here
Copy the text of a favorite poem or a story you've written or any body of text really
and paste it where they tell you to
and they'll make you a text cloud with word-size based on word-usage
like LJ tag clouds

Mine is the text from a little story I just posted.
To get yours off the site you'll have to copy & paste or snagit or whatever...no code
Brought to you by those crazy folks at IBM

I just got it in an email from the Very Short List. Man, I love those guys and I only subscribed to them initially because there was a rumor that Simon Dumenco edite for them. I love the 'cloud' your words created and you're starting a new story. Yay!! I be on the lookout.

arlad and i have been planning it for over a year and we finally decided that if we don't start it soon, we won't start it at all.

The funny thing is, I was just shown this site today. It was part of a teacher workshop I attended to help make the vocab more interesting to students.

Did you do their little questionnaire? They'd probably find your answers particularly interesting and really it only took me about five minutes. You can manipulate the fonts and colors, but mine was 'as is'. I try and write as if the scene were a painting. Now I can take the actual words and create actual little paintings. How cool is that! I love the idea of using something like this in the classroom, but they do say to be careful because they can't censor language. Even mine contains some of that. What grade do you teach?
