Wordle for 2006

I try to teach myself something new about techmology at least once a year. So, having read about Wordle I thought I'd see what our year in Spain would look like. I clicked on 2006 in our blog archive, then selected all the text, and put it into the fine Wordle word cloud creator. This is what I got: Our sabbatical blogs translated into words arranged graphically.

Then, I did another word cloud for 2008. This is pretty damned sweet:

Cool Quote on the Value of Language and Literature

“Without language there is no communication, speculative thought, or community; without literature, there is no in-depth understanding of narratives that lead to the discovery of other cultures in their specificities and diversity and to the understanding of other human beings in their similarities and differences.”

From the MLA's Report to the Teagle Foundation on the Undergraduate Major in Language and Literature.
