Ruth's Genealogy

“And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.”

Remember Wordle, the neat little program for generating “word clouds” that we all played with a few months ago?

Well, here is the Gettysburg Address, Wordle-style!



Lincoln was born two hundred years ago. Happy birthday Abe! But why are we in the 21st century still obsessed with this 19th-century man? We find Abe everywhere from advertising to political punditry. What does this popular Abe have to do with the historical Abe? 21st-Century Abe has six months to tackle these questions—starting February 12, 2009—and we need your answers. We’ve asked scholars and artists to get the ball rolling, but your responses will define 21st-Century Abe.

Abe would be proud!
