    Word Cloud of the text of the last 1000 stories on MacRumors.com. It includes page 2 and the iphone blog, so it is iphone-biased.

    Very cool arn!

    Interesting to see the "greater prominence" to words here...

    here are a couple with the last year of stories, but I liked the look of the first one better.
    ya, bigger words = used more times

    I like the different looks... but definitely the first one you posted looks best!

    Doctor Q should put together a WordCloud with the top posters on the board giving prominence to the highest posters!

    How 'bout it Doctor??

    I just love how mad jew, Doctor Q, and Mr. Anderson just dominate all of those images, who is the unlucky 501 who didn't make it? Cool Site

    EDIT: It appears Awimoway didn't make it by one post.

    Yeah, there's not 500 names listed on there (or I would be on it :(), so it must adjust somehow

    But really an interesting tool
    Thanks for sharing arn and for putting in the work on the top posters!

    I like the users one.
    I particularly like the one where I'm in the darkest blue (picture11). Almost invisible so I can pretend I have a life.:eek:

    You know this thread will just fuel the complaints that there is too much iPhone on Macrumors. :eek: Although I am pretty sure I saw Mac in that cloud somewhere. ;)

    Those are fun, Arn, thanks for sharing! I should check out that site. :)

    I only counted 147 names, I don't know if they're all in the top 147 or if some from below that were pulled in or not.

    A 500-name cloud would be a wondrous sight, indeed! Actually, that would be a great background (even better, a constantly updating screen saver)!
