I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love Wordle! This nifty thingy takes words of your choosing – from blogs, essays, letters, anything – and makes pretty patterns out of it. Like this, from my blog!
I’ve also discovered Wordoid, and enjoyed its offerings so much I’m thinking of renaming Hegemony Heights to Hegemonymously, or Hegemonymouth. Put in a word of your choice with some limiters, and be amused at the linguistic permutations it throws out. Guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.
If you want to see a really cool piece of Web 2.0 ‘poetry in motion’, literally, check this video out. From the web, called The Future of Publishing, “it was prepared by the UK branch of Dorling Kindersley Books. Originally meant solely for a DK sales conference, the video was such a hit internally that it is now being shared externally. We hope you enjoy it – and make sure you watch it up to at least the halfway point, there’s a surprise!” That last bit is really important.
Okay, this bit might be a bit boring for some of you, but Yahoo! is going to publish an Internet style guide. This will make life easier for some people, while the rest really don’t give a shit. So be it.
Right then. That’s enough words for now.
