I posted this in the Male Survivor board but I think it's more fitting here so I will re-post. Hope I'm not bothering anyone just wanted to share this neat little web application.

It's called Wordle. I linked a few that I just did at the bottom. I'm sure you can get pretty creative with it so maybe we can get some other posters - lets see what you can come up with.

You need JAVA for it to work. It's a free download at www.java.com. Just click the button that says "Free Java Download" depending how your browser is setup you might get a box at the top of your window asking if you want to allow the download or run the application - it is safe to run or download. If you download the installer just open it and it will download the application and install itself automatically into your internet browser.

M51,

Wow. Those are both pretty cool. I had never heard of Wordle before so this was a revelation for me. What an interesting application of web technology to the presentation of poetry! Thanks for sharing this with us.

Much love,
Larry
