Tag Cloud View of Bill Gates CES Keynote

Todd Bishop at Seattle P-I newspaper has published a telling tag
cloud view
of Bill Gates’ speech at CES earlier this week. Notes Bishop:

“Putting our fancy new gizmo to work, we fed the text of Bill Gates’
Sunday night Consumer
Electronics Show keynote
into the tag-cloud generator, and added
the results to our scrolling timeline
of Microsoft keywords. Here’s the
static view below, showing the most commonly used terms from the speech, and
providing an alternative look at what the company was saying during this
year’s show.”

Here is the result:

This is an excellent use of tag clouds! I wrote in our
wrap-of Gates’ speech
last Sunday that Xbox was mentioned a lot – and the
tag cloud clearly shows this. I wondered if Vista would be top word/phrase, and sure enough it is about equal with Windows. Other words to stand out include ‘media’,
‘hardware’ and ‘video’ (amongst others). One word that seems to be conspicuously
absent is ‘live’…

Also note the fairly big ‘deliver’ 🙂 2007 is the year when Microsoft has to
put up, or shut up.
