  1. Really cool D’Arcy! I would love to see a side by side comparison with McCain’s speech when he gives it. Even though Wordle puts words near each other randomly I love to see what serendipitously ends up near each other. Some phrases that put themselves together in my mind: “better new people”, “can change”, “America care” Anything else jump out at people?

  2. I would love to see Wordle scale words as [frequency in sample]/[frequency in corpus], rather than just [frequency in sample] as now. I think a few hidden values would pop quite surprisingly out of Obama\’s speech if it could.

  3. McCain Need Work Now! reminds me of the weird audio in the the old Gauntlet video game. “Valkyrie needs food badly.”
