Word Cloud...


Last night I was watching Channel 4 news which I rather enjoy, and they had a piece on Presidential debates. They invited visitors to view their US Election word cloud.

I didn't have a clue what that meant so I Googled it today. It is HERE. It's quite smart. You lob in your own text and the software arranges it into a little pic with the most frequently used words in your copy. The site asks you to credit it which I am happy to do via way of the link that is bolded out above.

This 'word cloud' is a little tale I wrote a while back about a massive weekend beer fest in BS5 when I lived with Bag and Seamus. Seamus had been working in Hong Kong and Bag and I had spent the weekend on the lash; Seamus returned to utter chaos.

That's a nice idea for a gift!

I was tempted to put rude words in and have a swear cloud, but maybe that's not in the spirit of things!

I wouldn't have published it if I did the sweary one!

I tried to create one of these a while back but it wouldn't compute my text (prob bad spelling!!) Maybe I'll try again. Are you going to put it on your sidebar?

( 11 would be two skinny women, right?!)
