Tag cloud - Alpha-sort or popularity sort?

I looked at the tag cloud (It looks more like a solid block since it is fully justified and sorted by size.)

It is currently sorted by size (large -> small).  It feels not like a traditional tag cloud.  It feels harder to find what I want than a traditionally styled tag cloud.  

I think it should be sorted alphabetically?  and center justified? 

Most tag clouds I see are sorted alphabetically allowing the font sizes to intermingle and create clarity of terms.(In our cloud, there is no visual indicator between tags, they all seem to run together)

This will make it look more like a traditional tag cloud and make it easier to interact with.


Anyone agree? disagree? alternative idea?


Does anyone even use the tag cloud? (Evgeny could pull the usage stats I assume?)
