Obama's Inaugural Speech - In CLOUDS!

THIS is a totally cool concept - and one that would be a great English Project for my 14 year old!  Can you SEE the emphasis?  WOW!

Obama Delivers his inaugural speech

Regardless of which side of the aisle you subscribe to, today Barack Obama gave a pretty powerful and uplifting inaugural speech. Full of hope and inspiration, even some of America's die hard Republican leaders found it to be an excellent speech.

By now you've either heard it or seen the transcript, but you've probably not seen it in a "word cloud" or a "Wordle" created using the text of the speech.

A Wordle is a program for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide.

See the blog I wrote the other day on Wordles to learn more.

So, anyway, below is a Wordle I created using the transcript from Obama's Inaugural speech.
