Word Clouds

Yesterday I posted about the WhiteHouse' Citizen's Briefing Book. It uses Word Clouds to visualize importance of the topics. After looking into it more, it turns out that there are a lot of Word Cloud or Tag Cloud Generators out there... see a Word Cloud of yesterdays page below generated by Wordle and another one by TagCrowd (both image captures, so there are no links). I like the look of the Wordle output more. They both have filter options (so that common words don't show) and there is some customization possible. TagCrowd uses HTML, this is why the text is not interleaved.
