Hitler freaks out over Comic Sans

With the recent public antipathy towards the font Comic Sans, I thought I’d share this video which made me laugh

If you’re still in the mood for a laugh, you may want to check out Hitler has Vista problems.

Wordle


wordle Hitler speech

Originally uploaded by tsheko

My first go at Wordle, the word cloud generator using text, has resulted in a rather strong example of the interesting possibilities with this application. Using Hitler’s speech delivered in Munich in April, 1923, the wordle has created a powerful, visual summary of the text, revealing  points of emphasis.

It would be an interesting experiment for students to enter chunks of text in order to visualise main concepts and ideas at a glance. You can also play around with colour and font. I’d be interested to know what other ideas anyone has for this application in the classroom.
