Wordle: Business People Get Help

He mentions a site called Wordle where you can build a word cloud of whatever you paste into it - pretty cool.  And a fellow named Simon Synett pointed out that it's a way to (my words) reverse-engineer your thinking from your writing. The more common words are bigger, and the less common words are smaller.

Here's what I got after pasting in our site and most of our blog entries.
