Trying Out an AnswerGarden Poll

I just learned about AnswerGarden through a tweet from Kathleen McGeady (@kathmcgeady), an Australian primary school teacher with a great class blog. I can imagine using it a lot for quick polls with my students next year. While there are a number of nice polling software options out there, what I like about this one is that it instantly shows the results in a word cloud, with the size of the cloud text weighted by the number of times the answer is selected. When you respond, you can either type your answer or click on an answer that is already displayed. So, here's my first attempt. Please respond so we can see what it looks like with lots of different answers! I have set this one so you can answer more than once. By default, though, it allows only one response from an IP address per day.
