I created the Wordle word-cloud layout algorithms while working on a social bookmarking application at IBM Research, in 2005. I created the “Wordle„ web application in 2008. Since that time, hundreds of thousands of people have saved over 7,000,000 word clouds to Wordle‚s public gallery, before the gallery was turned off.
I contributed a chapter about Wordle to the O'Reilly book “Beautiful Visualization”. You can buy the book—all royalties go to Architecture for Humanity—or you can download a copy of the chapter I wrote by clicking on .
