– Clouds

This is a cool way to kill, I mean spend, some time. Copy and paste the text of your c.v./resume into Wordle. The Wordle tag cloud might teach you something about yourself, or remind you of stuff you already know. Every word in my December ’07 resume makes the cloud below. (Collaborators, you’re in there, too!) Most repeated words are biggest.

And, what the heck, here’s Robin Behn’s “Gray Poem,” well loved by me:

From memory, I would have said that “whale” or “dive” would be among the prominent words in Behn’s poem. But, look at this: “turn” and “fathoms” and a few others are most recurring.

P.S. Thanks to Jimmy for the heads up.
