I found this link through Reddit.com. Thought some of you would find it useful/informative.

Presidential Speech "Tag Cloud"

There is a slider on that page that lets you look at the cloud for any major speech made by every US President since 1776.

It is interesting to see how often some keywords appear - like "terrorist", "security" and "freedom" in recent years.

This is frighteningly interesting, and an exceptional example of data visualisation at work.

A quick scroll and I noticed that the word "constitution" was fairly popular at first, but swiftly overtaken by "economic".

Jordan said it. This could make a brilliant prop in a music video [Smile]
