Sample Wordle

Wordle is a program used for creating “word clouds” out of any text you choose. Wordle extracts common words such as: a and the from the text you use. You decide the way that the word cloud is presented (the color, the direction of the words and organization). You can then save your cloud for your own use or allow others to view and comment on it.
