Personal note about this assignment: I thoroughly enjoyed this book; it was interesting to read Clive Thompson's perspective and his writing style made it easy to comprehend complex topics. I have subsequently sought out and read some of his other work. I contacted him by email and tweeted at him and I was thrilled when he responded to both! He was very helpful and even provided me with a complimentary kindle version of his book (I purchased the paperback edition).
I created this word cloud using the words in the chapter 'Public Thinking'. I contacted Clive Thompson who was kind enough to provide me with a digital copy of his book so I could create this word cloud. I chose the text from this chapter because it talks specifically about how much writing we are producing and how all that writing helps us clairify our thinking, refine our ideas, become more concise, be more interesting and improve our memory.
