The first blog I ever read on a regular basis was BldgBlog and I still read every word, so when it posted a word cloud of the upcoming BldgBlog book made on wordle.net , I felt obliged to try it with my own book. The results are gratifying:
Not only does it look a bit like Slovakia and/or the Czech Republic, but it really does contain all the ideas I cared about when I was writing it (and care about still). And it helps me think about the idea of machine-based content analysis. While this counting words does not say much about what I think, it does accurately capture what I am thinking about. (See here for other ways to determine what I am thinking about; see below for wordles with different font and color schemes).
