Wordle Now Cloud Maps Any RSS Feed

Wordle keeps going from strength to strength. Now it can scan any RSS feed to produce a tag cloud of your choice. I ran this blog through it:


That computer, science and courses are the top words is understandable, but where on earth did email sneak in from? I will have to watch my posts more carefully. It pains me to have to mention that word again in this post.

    did you put a feedburner version into wordle – I suppose that feedflares like “email this” might skew the size of words.

    This is a great enhancement for wordle.

    No, I used the feed address direct to WordPress.

    I had a look at the HTML for my blog pages and did find a number of ’email’ words, particularly from Lifehacker of all places.

    However I need to check the feed content itself to be satisfied.
