I decided that I wanted to create a tag cloud as well. I struggled to find a site that would use either the RSS feed from my blogs or take my blog url and recursively go through all blogs. I discarded ManyEyes as an option for my blogs, because you have to enter the text itself After a few attempts, a finally ended up inputting the last 15 urls manually in to Raimaker. I excluded the following words “business,card,create,code,richard,hirsch,the,data,etc,siemens,site,via,involve” and got the following cloud.
I thought it was interesting in that that the biggest words were “process” and “community”. Pretty much reflecting my current interests. I’d be curious to see a cloud on my earlier blogs. (If somebody has a site that might work, then just tell me in the comments).
I then decided to look at the tag cloud for all the scripts in the first completed scenario of the Community Project. To do this, I used ManyEyes and copied the entire text from the scripts. I deleted the first names and the roles. I expected that “process” would dominate but I was intrigued to see that customer and information were so predominant.
