Wordle text visualization: Cool, but not killer

A Wordle tag cloud, based on this blog as of Nov. 4, 2008. Common verbs, articles, and other words are stripped out, and the most frequently mentioned word gets the largest font. I wrote about Apple mice earlier this week, and the word "Mouse" is mentioned on the home page eight times.

You can randomize the appearance to try different fonts and colors, which is fun ... for about two minutes. Like many data visualizations, it's really cool but hardly a killer app that you return to every day.
