Bible Text Clouds

Bible Text Clouds.

This is a really great idea. Tag clouds are ways of visualizing the frequency of tags and keywords on particular sites. Text clouds is a way of measuring the frequency of text in a particular document. Craig Goodwin (I found this through jesuscreed.org) started putting some Bible texts into www.tagcrowd.com and came up with some great visualizations of text frequencies in Matthew, Mark, Luke, John & Romans.

I gave this a shot with 1 John from the NIV. (If you are viewing this page in a reader, you may need to visit this link to actually see the graphics.)
