My Resume as a Word Cloud

I created these using the Wordle web site: http://www.wordle.net/.

From that web site:

Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.

NPR: The State Of The Union, In Your Words

You can make your own word cloud from some text or a webpage using the same software as NPR: Wordle
