Animated Word Clouds

Last night Obama outlined the new policy in Afghanistan in a speech at West Point entitled The Way Forward in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Like many people, I have mixed feelings towards a larger military effort in the region. I have tried to represent that ambivalence with an animated word cloud based on the speech that transitions from one symbol to another.

This was created with custom code written in Processing. The two images came from here and here.
