Looking for a colorful way to waste some time? Check out www.wordle.net and paste in some text (or a blog post or two…). Wordle will find frequently occurring words in the text and create a ‘word cloud’ – a swarming concoction of the words you used most. You could spend hours playing around with different colors, layouts, and fonts. Trust me.
(Do you think any journals would accept a Wordle instead of an abstract?)
