Word clouds

I rather like the concept of “word clouds” as a means of capturing the essence of what we are saying or writing.

Facebook have just launched a fun little application that looks at your status updates – above, you can see the accumulation of ALL the status updates I have ever made – the majority of which are straight over from Twitter.

There is also a web-based version but I dislike the fact that it will not allow downloads – anybody know of a web-based app that will create a word cloud from any document and then allow you to download? Please let me know.
