Fooling around with wordle.net here is what I get when I post the entire text of the top four articles referenced by three leading social, news aggregators.
The top four articles, which got top billing across all three services, were:
- Women of Color in Tech: How Can We Encourage Them? – TechCrunch
- How We All Missed Web 2.0’s “Netscape Moment” – TechCrunch
- Epsilon data breach results in a huge loss of customer data – VentureBeat
- China’s Best Known Artist Arrested – ReadWriteWeb
A quick glance at the wordle tag cloud analysis and it looks like wordle favored the lengthy Sarah Lacy piece on Facebook/Netscape. A longer piece means more words which would explain why Facebook, IPO, and Netscape are so big in word cloud.
Is such a view useful? Is there some way to improve this?
