The diamond-square algorithm is a method for generating heightmaps for computer graphics. It is a slightly better algorithm than the three-dimensional implementation of the midpoint displacement algorithm which produces two-dimensional landscapes. It is also known as the random midpoint displacement fractal, the cloud fractal or the plasma fractal, because of the plasma effect produced when applied. Jason Davies created this Infinite Plasma Fractal using the diamond-square algorithm.
It is undeniably fun to mess with word cloud generators, especially ones that will run in a browser and export an SVG. Jason Davies offers several settings in his Word Cloud utility, which make it super fun to use.
