A New Meaning to Word Art

While the phrase WordArt generally conjures up images of much overdone Word ’97 rainbow presets, Wordle offers a whole new definition of the phrase.

Definitely the snazziest applet I’ve come across in a long time–this is such a neat tool. Enter in a bunch of text–be it a string of words relating to who you are, a paper you’ve written that you’re particularly proud of, or plug in the URL to your favorite blog–and watch as it comes to life in an artistically rendered explosion of text across the page.

Here’s my 10-page paper on healthcare in the DR Congo that I wrote earlier this semester:

"The Interconnected Deadlock of Political Instability and Healthcare," Sunanda Vaidheesh

Here are the lyrics to Freeze Ray from Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog:

"Freeze Ray," OST Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long Blog

Awesome!
