|Description||Tag Cloud Widget Engine|
MakeCloud is an engine to create dynamic tag cloud widgets, which can be generated from static text, a web page URL, or any RSS feed (which means it can create a tag cloud of a Twitter RSS feed).
The core technology that powers MakeCloud is a patent-pending algorithm that analyzes an RSS feed, and determines one tag which best describes each news item. In contrast, many well known examples of tag clouds, such as those seen on del.ico.us or flickr, are created by analyzing tags that humans entered. One major advantage of our approach is that tag clouds can be automatically generated from data that has not been tagged by people, such as data that changes too frequently for a person to tag. RSS data sources are now ubiquitous, and it is possible to turn nearly any data set into RSS, which makes it an extremely flexible input data source for MakeCloud.
