Erm. Cool visual used to be here (okay, from Jan 23 ’til late Jan 28) but you’ll have to link to it below to see it, since it may have been lousing up some folks’ Internet Explorer-mediated connections to this page? ?
Made from words in Obama’s inaugural speech, and found here. Thanks to granolasusan’s Twitter stream. Press the “click to interact” jobbie and you’ll see it more clearly, and be able to fiddle with the words a bit. Puts one to mind of Edward Tufte, just a little bit.
[And here, Stanley Fish offers a more analytical than visual take on the speech. Winding up, interestingly, at a point quite nicely depicted by the image above.]

Way cool. Love the Tufte principles. Attended one of his classes in Chicago last year – pretty cool.
Tufte class! Jealous!
