Our process, from the original Xing page.
- we discussed the topic Stewardship of the living and
- as we discussed we captured key words on postits. Anyone could contribute.
- we collected them on a flipchart
- at the end of the discussion, everyone was given a fixed number of "dots" (perhaps 5?) and invited to show which words were most important to them, by marking one (or multiple) dots on that word's postit with a marker.
- the dots were counted and used to weight (i.e. to size) the words for the word cloud - except for "Stewardship of the Living" which we did not vote on, it was made arbitrarily larger to serve as a title.
