extisp.icio.us presents a graphical representation of Freshblog's del.icio.us category tags. An excellent addition to the whole tagging and categories experiment that lets you see the relative importance of the tags I'm choosing, and the relationships between them. Some are so inter-related that they're obscured. Perhaps I should take this as a hint to tag more descriptively and with less words?
So how-to? Do you have a del.icio.us signon? Why not generate your own extisp.ici.ous page? "Extisp.icio.us text gives you a random textual scattering of a user's tags, sized according to the number of times that they've used each of them, and leaves you to draw your own insights from the overlapping entrails."
You can also use extisp.icio.us to generate your own collage of images, with an image for each tag. Apparently this is not always safe for work, and the site can only run the operation 5000 times a day, so no permalinks &c, but fun to do.
Thanks for the tools, Kevan. Much appreciated.
Update: Kevan, the tool's creator, reports that permalinks to the collages are possible, they just link to a cached version without generating a new version. I stand corrected!!
