Badass site

Check out this very cool site recommended by loyal reader RW: Basically it utilizes "Tag Clouds" (if you know what those are) to pull the most recited words from all Presidential speeches and it has a nifty "slider" bar across that you can scroll to any time period and see the most used words from that time period interactively. You can read more about it on the website. There are two things specifically I like about this site:

1) The way the creator uses Tag Clouds and the Slider bar.
2) The content is also fascinating just to scroll through history and have a basic understanding of what was going on

Anyway, check it out if you have time and read this Wall Street Journal article about it - State of the Speeches: Web site tracks a history of Presidential Buzzwords.
