Gather your words and Wordle them

For everyone who needs a collage of words check out Wordle.

Below is a Wordle of the many tech tools I play or work with. Where would we all be without Google and the ability to work collaboratively with a variety of tech tools?

You can paste in text, the URL of any blog, blog feed, or any other web page that has an Atom or RSS feed, or enter a user name to see their tags. Then you can tinker with the formats and fonts then decide if you want to keep it or discard it.

Wordle was created by Jonathan Feinberg who credits his employer (IBM) for allowing him to develop this and now share with the rest of the world.

The images you create with Wordle are yours to use in any way you choose. You may print T-Shirts, business cards, brochures, what have you. On the other hand, when you place an image in the gallery, anyone else can use it too! So if you want to keep it to yourself, print it out without saving it.
