AVC Blog Wordcloud Fork me on GitHub
  • What is it? The word clouds below are the top 100 most used words per year from Fred Wilson's blog at avc.com.
  • Why did you make it? I wanted to build something "smallish" using Scala, had some time over the holidays, and this seemed like a reasonable project.
  • Cool, as a PHP/JS guy how did you like Scala? I actually liked programming with it a lot. I'll flush out some real thoughts in a blog post soon.
  • Are the HTML files you used available for download? Sure thing! They're available avc_downloaded_urls.tar.gz
  • Is the Scala code available? Sure it's on GitHub
  • Cheers to the mbostock and jasondavies for d3 and the d3.cloud layout which are used to generate the word clouds

Blue words didn't appear in the top 100 list for the previous year.
