A new Feature - "Tag Cloud"

Ok, just trying out the latest and greatest tools on the web. Here's an interesting one. Go down the page on the left column and notice the new box called "Tag Cloud". Without getting too technical, this box takes a bunch of RSS newsfeeds which I supply, and extracts keywords from the content and lists them according to prevalence. The larger the word, the more prevalent the term. Click on that word and it shows you all the links from those RSS feeds. Use it to check back often on stories or posts on stuff mostly related to GT sports. The feeds I have used include this site (a bit redundant I know),, AJC,, some search engines that allow RSS feeds, etc. So check it out and let me know what you think.

Note: you will find stories unrelated to GT, just because that term may have shown up in the feeds. Remember, the feeds I have added are not all 100% GT - some are general college hoops - like CBS College Hoops, etc.

Here's a review of the TagCloud technology from Wired Magazine.......
