I think Wordle word clouds could make fantastic quick and easy business cards for Web 2.0 types and bloggers. Whack your CV or your blog into Wordle, screengrab your Wordle cloud and pop that into Flickr (remembering to thank and link Wordle for their Creative Commons kindness, in a good online citizen kind of a way) and then use card-print service Moo. Business cards created and ordered in under an hour without leaving your desk! All you’ll have to wait for is the post – it could put your local copy shop out of business!

Thanks for the heads-up on this service to both Ian Grant and fellow CW blogger, Ian White.

    That is quite interesting, Check out this wordle projcet it gives a new perspective of looking at the inuagural addresses (all of them). Its much easier to digest than reading them all, however looking at wordle may just intrigue one to read the whole address. You may even be suprised by some of them. There is a stark contrast between lincolns first and second.
