Little Puffy Edublog Tag Clouds.

Yeah, so it's been a while since I've been on here. Whoops. Most everyone is familiar with tag clouds, I hope. Basically, it's a web 2.0 visual representation of more commonly occuring tags or meta data. There's a web app called TagCrowd that allows you to select an url, upload a file or paste your own text to custom-make your own tag cloud. It's fun. I figured I would run it on a
couple of blogs I read, but don't necessarily respect.

First, the anti-union, Mike Antonucci:

Notice above, that the word "student" does not make it into the cloud.

Now Eduwonk, following below....

Obama still beats out McCain, almost a ratio of 2-1. I'll take those odds come november 4th. Notice that in the cloud, the tags teachers and students fall behind schools.

Below, the center of idiocy, the Fordham Foundation's Flypaper blog.

Hey, Liam and Mike and Checker-- if students are so important (as you constantly put out there with everything you folks do, 'cause according to you it's all about the kids) then why do the tags children, child and student come after unions in the cloud? What about McCain? Are you folks McCain supporters?

So, what does everyone else think?
