From the website: “Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text.” And a cool toy it is.
Obviously, SageCircle really, really focuses on AR and the analysts (click on the graphic to the right to enlarge).
However, Wordle is not just a toy, but potentially a useful tool for analyst relations professions with analysts that blog. Now you can in a minute with only a simple cut-and-paste of a URL get a feel for the most frequent – and by extension, most important – words in an analyst’s blog. For example, the word cloud to the left is for Michael Gartenberg of JupiterResearch. Hmm, Michael has been writing alot about the iPhone and developers. The example below is Phil Fersht’s Horses for Sources blog on outsourcing news and trends.
Bottom Line: While quite fun, Wordle can be a quick-and-easy tool for AR professionals. It is well worth taking a few minutes to check out.
