On Our Own Terms

While I hesitate to promise that this is the final post we’ll put up on this page having to do with October’s Bouchercon in San Francisco, the chances are good that it’s one of the last.

Even before our post-convention coverage began, I was thinking about feeding that reporting into the Wordle “word cloud” generator--which I’ve had fun with previously--and seeing what it might make of the posts. Today I finally did that, with several results, the two below being my favorite designs. Our most commonly used terms make up the cloud, with those that appeared most often in our coverage being the biggest.
