Actually, the tag cloud was very naive until now. I've created a better
algorithm in this very moment.

Our tag ranking is based on the amount of references to that tag and the
hotness of the content that references it (in two flavours: overall
maximum hotness and current hotness). "Hotness" is a feature where
people can assign temporary points to content to make it "hot".

The algorithm for the cloud is based on a logarithmic scaling of the
tags relevant for a given partition of the content.
