FDASM Transcripts as a Wordle Visualization


I’ve been concerned about the archived videos of the FDASM webcast disappearing this week. I’ve heard from so many people that they don’t have time to watch them, and that it is too hard to find the interesting parts in the two eight-hour chunks of video currently available. Perhaps the transcripts will be a little more accessible? It is still a thousand pages of content, but perhaps easier to skim. The transcripts can be downloaded here (bottom of the page):

In the meantime, here is a Wordle visualization of the most frequently repeated terms from the transcripts. Click through for higher resolution versions.
