A tag cloud is a set of key words or tags, organized to show the relative importance of topics, typically at a web site.
Any Xholon application can write itself out as a tag cloud, in tabular format. For example, the Xholon Life model, written out as a tag cloud table, looks like the following. This shows the name of each XholonClass in the application, and the number of instances (occurrences) of each class.
XholonClass Occurrences A_Ketoglutarate 3 A_KetoglutarateDehydrogenase 3 Acetate 12 AcetylCoA 3 Acetylcholinesterase 12 Aconitase 3 Activity 1 AlcoholDehydrogenase 1 Aldolase 1 Artery 3 Astrocyte 2 Atmosphere 1 Axon 164 AxonBilayer 328 AxonHillock 164 AxonMembrane 328 AxonSegment 328 BipolarCell 1 BloodPlasma 222 BodyOfWater 1 BoneMarrow 1 ...

Files of this type can be uploaded to the Many Eyes site, which can then create a tag cloud visualization. A Xholon example is here.
