Barack Obama has been sworn in as the 44th President of the United States! The Web is abuzz with energy ad hope. Below is a tag cloud of Obama’s inauguration speech. Let’s hope that this positive energy transfers into our own community and spurs libraries on to do better things, build better collections, and better serve our readers.
(Update 7PM PST: I updated the tag cloud without the term “applause.” Thanks for the commenter who pointed that out. JRJ)
It was a moving victory speech from PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA! On this night, in this town, there are parties in the street, cars honking, a feeling like 11:59 on New Year’s eve. Below is the tag cloud of President Obama’s speech, courtesy of tag crowd. For those that weren’t able to tune in, here’s audio of his speech. Now the real work begins!
Last week I posted a tag cloud of Barack Obama’s speech accepting the Presidential candidacy of the Democratic party. Today is John McCain’s turn. I got the transcript at zimbio, the same site I used to get the Obama speech. Tag Crowd was again used to analyze the transcript. Enjoy!
We’ve played around before with tag cloud word analysis (using a tool called Tag Crowd), so I thought I’d do a cloud for Barack Obama’s convention speech on thursday night. I’ll post another cloud for John McCain’s speech on Thursday.
Some of you may remember that we’ve been interested in visualization tools like tag cloud generating services (i.e., Tag Crowd). We haven’t done one of these for a while, but watching tonight’s State of the Union address, I thought it’d be interesting to visualize that text (courtesy of the NY Times). Let us know what you think.
