One of the books I'm enjoying right now is Untangling the Web, by Steve Dembo and Adam Bellow. I loved seeing Wordle.net included in their list of tools they chose to share because I love word clouds. My students love word clouds. Who doesn't love word clouds? The newest tip I just learned is that you can eliminate a word (command+rt click) from the Wordle cloud. Another tip, an oldie but a goodie, is to use the tilde (~) to keep words together like 21st~Century = 21st Century. I also read that Jen Wagner hosts a "guess the Wordle" - looks fun and challenging. Love her PBJ website, http://www.projectsbyjen.com/!
