Cool Stuff

A word cloud is a visualization technique that illustrates the frequency of words in a text. Often, word clouds are used to make inferences from the extracted text found in political speeches and other transcripts. Some experts argue against the correctness of word clouds, since long words are emphasized over short words and character ascenders and descenders draw undue attention. But who cares they just look cool! :-)
 

My resume as a word cloud.
