"Author Cloud"

This afternoon I went up to a public talk at the Gurdjieff Foundation of Illinois, which was quite interesting (I was particularly impressed with their rather large and well-appointed, albeit quite anonymous from the street, headquarters). In the course of the program, and the chit-chat before, during, and after, the subject of various "Fourth Way" books came up, and I got the idea to go take a look at my "author cloud" over on just to see how the various names showed up.

An "author cloud" takes your collection (mine currently featuring slightly over two thousand books) and lists all the authors, with font sizes increasing in accordance with how many titles one has by that author. While not being among those in the largest point sizes, Gurdjieff, Ouspensky, and Bennett are certainly notable on this (you can click on the image for a full-size version that's easier to read).

Anyway, while I was poking around there I got the idea that it might be fun to do a screen-grab (or, in this case, four screen grabs and some cut-and-pasting) and show it off in here. This is one of the more amusing "toys" over on ... you should check it out!
