Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. Cooked up by Jonathan Feinberg, Senior Software Engineer at IBM Research, Wordle lets you enter text or any URL with an RSS feed and turns the words into ‘wordles’, great looking visualizations of the entered text. The more times a certain word is mentioned throughout a text, the bigger it’s displayed, sort of like tag clouds.
