I was recently pointed to a fun web site (http://www.pubmed2wordle.appspot.com/) that does a Pubmed search for an author, then creates a “wordle” from the titles and abstracts of the articles found.  If you want to create wordles, from other lists of words, you can go directly to the web site http://www.wordle.net/advanced

The pubmed2wordle code is rather buggy (as admitted by the authors), but it is fun anyway.

Here are some wordles that I created:

Karen Ottemann wordle

Nader Pourmand wordle

Kevin Karplus wordle
