Help me create big circles of content that orbit around each other

There have been a few questions about mindmapping apps before but I'm looking for something to create mind clouds...I want to create large circles with content orbiting around it, with links to Flickr, YouTube, blog entries etc. The closest thing I have found is Mindcloud.jp but it's a bit wonky and mostly in Japanese. Also I can't see how I would embed it into another site, so ideally I'm looking for some kind of widget that I can embed into a Wordpress blog...or even a Wordpress theme that could create these mind clouds. Any ideas?
