When Irish Eyes are Smiling

Via Eachtra (who have gone live with an impressive new website), we found Wordle.

Wordle is a web toy for generating “word clouds” from text, in this case generated by our RSS feed. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the  text.

Ah! Just got it on the Remington Steele vid – ‘When Irish Eyes are Happy, They’d ‘Steele’ your heart away’!
