This story from Consequence of Sound on Labyrinth and how Bowie’s portrayal of Jareth was a sexual awakening for many kids in the 80s is wonderful. Me and many of my friends were enamored with this character.

Speaking of Bowie – watch him and Trent Reznor performing “Hurt” together in 1995. Get ready to feel feelings!

Happiness is a Word Cloud of Praise

by Jamie Sanford on November 19, 2010

Word Cloud of Jamie

Christopher S. Penn sent along this idea in his recent email newsletter.

Here’s a personal branding tip to help you clarify who you are and what you do. Collect all of your recommendations from LinkedIn, all the complimentary tweets about you on Twitter, and any other place you’re likely to have nice words about you. Stuff them all into Wordle and see very clearly the words other people use to describe you. This is very powerful, especially if you’re at a loss for words to describe yourself on resumes, web sites, etc.

So, I used my LinkedIn recommendations to create the cloud you see here.  I’m really pleased with it.

What would your word cloud look like? Will you be happy with the words that show up?
