#Operaplotters have reported a sharp increase in spare time now that the contest has closed as well as an inability to know what to do with it. For some, analysis has proven to be a comforting time filler. @Dumbledad in particular has created several interesting visuals, the first of which is a Wordle diagram of the entries. Regular readers may remember Miss Mussel’s iTunes Wordle meme from last summer.
For those that don’t know, Wordle transforms submitted text into a word map with the number of times a word is repeated reflected in the size of the word. So, for all the incest, rape, backstabbing, frontstabbing, suicide and deceit, opera (and therefore life) is really all about love. How sweet.
@Dumbledad has arranged the data in another interesting way as well. The diagram is better appreciated on the original site because you can see what’s in the little white boxes but here’s a .gif version to tempt you.
