- About Virtually Olivia -

Welcome to the chronicle of places I go, and events I attend in my Second Life travels. I post lots of photos and landmarks to get to stops I recommend. Most of this blog - but not all - is dedicated to educational builds or places pertaining to education. I am an ardent Second Life traveler, and this blog reflects that. Olivia Hotshot.

VWER Suggestions are Ready

I will be giving out the VWER suggestions box results at tomorrow's meeting.

About the image on the giver:

I created the word cloud by copying the transcript into the text area of the word selection and then adjusted the font, shape, orientation and color scheme. The size of the words reflects how often they were repeated during the meeting.



Welcome to Tagxedo, tag cloud with styles

Tagxedo turns words -- famous speeches, news articles, slogans and themes, even your love letters -- into a visually stunning tag cloud, words individually sized appropriately to highlight the frequencies of occurrence within the body of text.

A few examples to show the versatility of Tagxedo, especially how tightly the words hug the shapes. Feel free to click the pictures and play with them in Tagxedo. If you like these tag clouds, you must also check out the gallery which has many more candies for your eyes.
