I thought I would have a change of scenery this week and have a little fun. I went to the wordle web site and created a word cloud, which takes the words in the blog posts since I started the blog in May 2010, and creates a graphic that gives greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text.
So what does it show? Well, computing is much more prominent than astronomy or astronomers, which reflects that the posts lean towards computing rather than astronomy. “Cloud(s)” feature(s) prominently, along with “application” and “software,” which reflect my interest in running applications in the cloud. The large numbers of words in the word cloud suggests that I have covered a broad range of topics in the past 15 months, which is something I have tried to do here, in what I think of as my on-line diary of computing topics that interest me.
