Wordle – Word Clouds
From now onwards I am starting up a series, where in I will share cool java applications that I come across. I don’t want to keep my blog stiff. Even some friends have started commenting that, we get exam fever when we stumble on javapapers.com
Sometimes I couldn’t resist myself when I see a nice thing that I feel like introducing to others. So how is it going to get related with javapapers? Will I post about a nice secret joke that I came across. No! as always I will stick to java.
So how can you identify this series? Watch out for the tag (look at the url) – “java-gallery”. Now over to the first cool thing :)
I came across a website named wordle, which generates word clouds. Its awesome! Done using java platform. You should have java in your machine to run that. If you came to javapapers.com thinking that its about coffee, then this site is not for you.
I am dumbstruck by the options it gives. Its not just a toy, it has loads and loads of logic behind it. You may wonder how useful it is? There are many ways, wordle can be useful, starting with generating a nice image for you T-shirt. More than worrying about the usefulness, I wish to appreciate the innovate idea.
