  • So, if we take the example of Flickr, we could have:

    a) Newness. Represented by the order of the tags
    b) Quantity of photos tagged with the tag. Represented by Size
    c) Interestingness, represented by intensity of the tag. Tags associated with photos that are on average more interesting are darker (or lighter, depending on your background colour)
    d) Popularity. Tags that are associated with photos that are viewed more than others are "warmer".

    So, for example, my tag argh [flickr.com] would be somewhere near the start of the list (as there's a relatively new photo there) small (since it refers only to one photo) red (since it's been viewed by 140+ people) and bright, since flickr thinks that photo is 'interesting'. In contrast, my léonbrocard [flickr.com] tag would be bigger, but further down the list (since I haven't uploaded a photo of you in aged [bbq pictures to be uploaded tomorrow!]), more blueish (hell, there's a photo of you in there that no-one else has even looked at) and less intense because flickr thinks that you're boring (or at least my photos of you are).
