Playing with tag clouds (again)

I like tag clouds a lot as a way of summarizing text because they are simple to understand and simple to produce. There are various tools for producing them but the one that I tend to use (just because I came across it first) is Wordle.

Wordle creates tag clouds from text and URLs. Once created, the display of the tag cloud can be manipulated by changing the font, colours and text directions.

This simple example was produced from my CV.
