I just tried out “Wordle” (http://www.wordle.net/). It’s a “toy” which creates “word clouds” of text. You input the text (or a link to a web page) and the program creates a “word cloud” that gives “greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text.”

Apparently some people are putting this to academic/educational use by inputing lots of text and analyzing which words appear most frequently. . . I don’t know about that, but it does look pretty cool.

In any case, it looks like I must write about “narratives” a lot. . .
