Wordle of my thesis

I hauled out the old thesis and copied & pasted the text into Wordle. Yishay persuaded me to take it further and submit it to the I wordled my thesis group on Flickr.

The thesis seems more accessible as a tag cloud and, when enlarged, it visually summerises the key words and ideas contained in the document .

Gabriela pointed me towards Tagul when she Twittered about it. Alex, the designer of Tagul has taken the Wordle concept further and created a site that allows you to make clouds that can be “used on blogs, web pages .. as a replacement of ordinary tag clouds”. As oposed to Wordle, where the tag cloud is a single image, each tag in Tagul is linked with an URL and is “clickable”. Take a look and see. Links go to Google, but Tagul allows you to direct them to any URL on the web.

    Hey! I learned something today.. going to tagul my thesis now. well, soon anyway.

    thanks!

    What we need now is a tool that computes tag cloud distance, and hooks you up with those in your proximity.
