I found out how to use Wordle today and create my own “cloud”. Essentially it’s a sort of tag cloud for a block of text. I decided to paste in the text from my first proper talk that I did back in December 2008 with Kathryn and Con. This is what I got, and I think you can see from it what I so eagerly wanted to tell people about in talking professionally for the first time and what this meant for me to getting my voice out there. I quite like it. It’s me to a t. A mixture of statements of the obvious, “maori”, “indigenous”, “library”, “conference” and emphasizing words like, “actually”, and “want”.
