Tag Cloud for Echo Chamber Project
Submitted by kentbye on Fri, 2005-06-17 11:17. Drupal | Folksonomy | Tagcloud | Website
Here is a "tag cloud" for all of the folksonomy tags used so far on EchoChamberProject.com.
You'll see all of the related posts on this site when you click on a tag.
The first tag cloud is ordered by frequency and the second is alphabetized:
New Media | Website | PR | Status | Collaboration | Drupal | Journalism | Transparency | Theory | Decentralization | Echo Chamber Project | Open Source | Film | Blog | Interview | Political | Worldview | Communications | Conference | Folksonomy | Media Criticism | Volunteer | Dialogue | International Law | Rosen | Evolution | Kent Bye | Objectivity | Plante | ToDo | Advisor | Civics | Roadmap | Wilber | About | CivicSpace | Ecosystem | Choice | Murphy | Sociology | ACH | del.icio.us | Intelligence Analysis | Science | Credibility | Distribution | Diversity | Errors | Final Cut Pro | Fundraising | Law | Philosophy of Science | Podcast | Political Bias | Activism | Analysis | CBS | Deception Detection | Editing | History | RSS | Social | Subjectivity | Vlog | ABC | AL Tubes | Economics | FCC | NYT | Sirota | Sundance | Training | Wiki | XML | Borger | Brody | Deliberation | EcoVillage | Identity | LAMP | Lobe | Maine | May | Media Logic | Metaphor | Mitchell | NBC | OHanlon | Psychology | Queen | Software | Spiral Dynamics | Strobel | Sustainability | Transcripts | Brown | Buddhism | Community | Digital Divide | Donnelly | Education | Fair Use | FireANT | Google | Human Rights | KM | Kwiatkowski | Landay | Loiseau | Math | Music | Nature | Schechter | Screencast | Sivaraksa | Skype | Social Capital | Tag Cloud | Thielmann | Thomas | Tiger | Wedgwood |
Below is the alphabetized tag cloud...

I like to think of this as the "brain" of the website so far, and it could be a very useful navigation tool.
It also makes context more explicit, and it's the type of thing that I have been planning on aggregating for every soundbite from the documentary's 45 interviews -- More details can be found by clicking on the folksonomy term to see all of my blog posts related this concept.
I'm going to pass this link along to some Drupal developers to see anyone is interested in coding this type of tag cloud feature into a Drupal module -- I think it'd be a relatively simple thing to automate.
UPDATE: Greg Heller pointed me to Development Seed's tag cloud, and says that it's probably the "pop tags" Drupal module. So it may look like that this may already create this type of tag cloud. I have other ideas for what I want to do with this type of feature and Greg suggests that it might be possible to build on top of this module.
UPDATE: Morbus Iff also pointed me to this tagcloud effort: http://drupal.org/project/tagadelic to look into.
UPDATE: The http://drupal.org/project/tagadelic developer for Drupal actually dropped by my site to see the tag cloud I hacked together and left a comment that says that he's interested in potentially collaborating with what I've come up. So there you go -- I throw a proof-of-concept together and the ball has already started rolling to modify an existing solution that I didn't even know existed before this afternoon.
UPDATE: I provide more details for how to create a tag cloud in Drupal in the next post.
And here's a picture of my folksonomy tag distribution as of 6-17-05:
