We received over 50 words that people thought best described Palo Alto. From there, we sorted through them - putting synonyms and similar words together (for example, "energy" and "energetic" were combined, as were "crowded" and "overpopulated") and picking some that we found the most interesting.
We then used a website called wordle.com to make a WordCloud. The more times a word was listed, the bigger it will appear. The most common words were innovative and perfect.
