All the cool kids are doing it...

No, this isn't another plug for Twitter. Brad brought a TechPresident post from Micah Sifry to my attention. It boiled Sen. Obama's speech on race down to a 50-word text cloud and then he added:
It would be cool if someone felt moved to do the same with, say, the top 20 blogs commenting on the speech (drawn from Memeorandum?).
He might want to check out Virtual Vantage Points, where we've been doing that sort of thing for a few months now.

It's nice to have that kind of validation for your ideas, though. And thanks again to Brad for pointing it out to me. He's a bright fella, that Brad.

Too kind, sir. No problem on pointing it out. I thought you'd be amused by his "idea."

You know, it being the same idea that you called me about, all excited, like a whole year ago. ;)
