Turn Any Document Into a Great-Looking Word Cloud

You've probably seen tag clouds on web pages, which aim to summarise a conversation or a collection of tags by using a word's size on a diagram to reflect its importance.

A tag cloud, or more generally a word cloud, is a neat way to summarize a document.  It looks pretty, and actually tells you a lot more about the file than you might imagine.

So here's news of a free web site that will turn any document file from your PC into a word cloud.  Just head to http://timc.idv.tw/wordcloud/en/# and choose the Local File option from the menu.  Browse to the text file that you want to convert, and then wait a couple of seconds before clicking to see the finished results.

Plain text files work best, and the longer the better.  As you can see from the example below.  I guess you can probably tell what I was writing about.
