visualizing tags

We've been talking a lot about tagging recently. Even if you are a big proponent of tags, they won't do you any good if they aren't displayed so that you can explore them.

First, there is the ubiquitous tagcloud.

But tagclouds aren't the only way to explore tags. Some other examples:

Delicious Soup

Fidgt - uses "Tag Magnets" to find other users with the same tags.

Mind My Map

Images of Mind My Map and Delicious Soup are from Visual Complexity

Does anyone have a new link for the youtube video?

Here is the video from the fidgt website. The YouTube one seems to be working for me, though.

You're right it is working now. Thx!

Hi Sarah,

I found another tag visualizer on visual complexity that looks pretty close to some of our ideas. It's even in ActionScript! Check it out if you get a chance.
