Wordle.net is the early pick this week.  It is a site that allows you to make text diagrams of word collections that look really cool.  Think of it as a tag cloud that makes art.  You can paste in your own text and then there are quite a few settings from color to font to how you want the text to be arranged.  It then generates your Wordle for you which you can save and share with the world.  I took my iTunes collection and generated one for the artists weighted by album.  A tip if you want to group words together, use a tilde (~) instead of a space as that will act as a space for you.  That is how I was able to get band names to stay grouped.  If you make one, feel free to post your Wordle in the comments.
