Wordle's a Great Graphics Tool
Don't know how long it's been around, but we've come across Wordle, a great free tool for making word cloud graphics. Want to highlight a proposal, planning document, or outreach initiative? Transform the document making the proposal, report, or offer into a Wordle, and you've got a supportive illustrative graphic, just like that! Wordles can break up tedious text, provide eye-catching displays, and, indeed, reveal what you're actually saying with all that verbiage.

As Harry Urschel is urging here, run your resume through Wordle to see how you look served up graphically. Get out there, we'd urge, with a word cloud graphic — it will be an attention-grabber and, hopefully, a favorable eye-opener. Wordle looks like a neat relational tool for those of us without much artistic skill of our own.
