A Picture Says a Thousand Words with Wordle

Shortly after tonight’s second presidential debate between John McCain and Barack Obama, I stumbled upon a word cloud graphic titled ‘Obama at Oct. 7 Debate‘ on Wordle.  As with tag or word clouds in general, the collage shows words used and their relative frequency with word size.  Wordle, a tool created by IBM Research engineer Jonathan Feinberg, is definitely worth a second look.

While on Wordle, I checked out a couple famous speeches including Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream“, and JFK’s “We Will Go to the Moon.” I also couldn’t resist creating my very first Wordle. The tool allows you to paste text, or enter a blog’s URL.  Here is what you get when plotting my company’s corporate blog, ask.enquiro.com.
