Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

I’m taking the rest of the month off from blogging and hopefully tie up a few loose ends before the year is over. That said, I wanted to wish my readers and friends a Happy Holiday and a Happy New Year! You guys made 2010 a banner year for this blog and I just wanted to say thanks!

All the best for you in 2011!

  1. Just found this – http://www.wordle.net/ “Create your own word clouds”
    Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.

  2. Open source “Word Cloud” library – https://wordcram.wordpress….
    WordCram: An open-source Wordle-like library
    If you’re a programmer, and you want to create Wordle-like effects in your own software, then you couldn’t do much better than to start with WordCram. WordCram is an excellent new open-source project, designed to work as an extension library for the Processing programming environment.

  3. More advanced “Wordie” App for “Word Clouds” – http://www.tagxedo.com/abou
    Not so much an “alternative” to Wordle as much as “Wordle – the next generation”. It’s a leap forward both in the layout algorithms (which permit sophisticated shape-filling) and the design of the tweaking interface. It’s very unusual to find a programmer who has both the sophisticated algorithmic know-how and the keen sense of user-centered design that Hardy Leung exhibits. He clearly has had an eye on the various warts in Wordle, and has addressed them with energy and determination.

    Complex networks are everywhere and you can map many things today to reveal hidden patterns behind linked data. At linkfluence, most of the time we’re mapping social media and how they connect to each others with hyperlinks. But sometimes, some datasets are so exciting that we allow us a short recreation outside of the webmaps. When we saw last week the work Jerry Neumann did about venture capitalists coinvestment and his need to have a better interface to give access to the results obtained, we immediately contacted him to propose him to work on his data and create an interactive map. In the next days, we sent a few emails and made some adjustments on the map to adapt it to this new kind of data and we’re really proud today to publish it on our website ! To access it you simply need to click on the picture.
