A tag cloud (__word cloud__ or __wordle__ or __weighted list__ in visual design) is a novelty visual representation of text data, typically used to depict tag (metadata) on websites, or to visualize free form text- wikipedia
While a word cloud may not be the best representation it is a good starting point for creating a compact and visually pleasing form of visual summary.
We can imagine overcoming some of the issues with word clouds by using the automatically created svg's by hand. In this way we can tweak word size and colour and add new keywords as well as providing hyperlinks.
The important think here is the underlying data. We can store the keywords as a structured json file which we visualise in different ways. Improving the text analysis, and improving the visualisation techniques can evolve over time - wiki style.
