Themed word cloud for Tracy Camp interview

This themed word cloud highlights key concepts from the interview with Tracy Camp on May 29, 2007. The text that was submitted to the Wordle tool was first updated to force phrases such as "computer science" to stick together rather than appearing as individual words. We have also removed trivial words that represent habits of speech ("Well", "Yeah") or inconsequential verbs/adjectives/adverbs, rather than key concepts. The resulting word cloud can thus be said to represent the essence of the interview in some sense.

There is also a larger version of the word clouds.
