    here's a simple yet surprisingly interesting little app that turns entered text or your delicious tags into an artfully arranged cloud.

    Here's avatar's delicious tags. It's pretty sparse because I'll use it for a couple days and then forget about it for a month. Interesting though:



    But here's Warren's tag cloud, which is much more interesting:



    Try it yourself and show us the results.

    That's cool. It doesn't work so well with plain text.

    why can people do this sort of thing with tags but few tagging systems I've come across let you branch the tags or nest them or the like so I can't tag something as say, video and then put one item as video>music and another as video>humor so I can differentiate more quickly between humorous videos and things that are simply humorous without being videos. hopfully web 3.0 is about utility and not tags and clouds and rounded edges and gradients and shiny.

    Something interesting that I saw was a mix-up between this and the subtitles for the various Dr. Who episodes.

    Something for every writer to do perhaps?
