Have you heard of Wordle? This is exactly the kind of silly internet program that just tickles me to no end. All you do is go to Wordle and enter in some content, or even just your website’s url, and Wordle uses your content to make a cool image of your most used words. Our big word, no surprise, is bacon. For a larger view of this image, go here.
Once your wordle is designed, you can change the color palette and font, customizing it to your personal aesthetic. You could use this for anything…as a fancy cover for an essay! (Professors just love that kind of crap, right?) Or submit a poem you’ve written and see it transformed into a visual piece. The possibilities are huge. And totally fun. You have to go try this.
