Worlde

I must admit to being impressed by Wordle (via Orbiting Frog), enough that I had to give it a tip of the hat in passing...


My del.icio.us tag cloud as a Wordle...

Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.

It's a real pity that it's a Java applet and you can't use it as a component and build cool stuff on top of it. A clean room implementation as a web service using Python on Google's App Engine anyone?
