Note

Shortly after I went live with this presentation (2/23/2010), Wordle briefly went off-line due to some potential legal issues (see here ) only to return less than 24 hours later. I'm not sure what the status will be in the future; however, as of this writing, Wordle is the only service that I've evaluated that allows for the "right-clicking to remove a word" technique used as the basis of a portion of this presentation. MANY of the other services will give you a similar initial picture of a text; you just can't go digging as you can with Wordle.
