Word (and tag) clouds are fairly useless (but interesting) way of arranging information.  Wordle is your go-to webapp for creating word clouds from just about anything.  (In the right hands, it might actually allow for a useful graphical representation of word frequency.)  In any case, it’s certainly an interesting time-sink.  Play with the source, the font, color, edging, orientation, and more!
