What's a brain cloud?

Human Brain Cloud is a massively multiplayer word association game that has a strangely addictive quality to it... and apparently it's a busy little site, as I just received this message while playing along: "This Account Has Exceeded Its CPU Quota". The site displays a word or words and you type the first word that comes to your mind when you see it, the other players do the same and the site builds a word map that links all of the responses. If you are interested in accolades they keep track of who has submitted the most words and who is "most in tune with humanity". It's interesting to see the maps that are generated, and it reminds me of the Alicebot approach to pattern matching. I think that the two should get together...
