Telescoping Tag Clouds

One could take a logo & make a it into a shaped tagcloud that telescopes to various sub parts of the domain.  This was my last thought last night. To be continued.  The higher level network images like tetraks & pentracks and even the could yield  interesting visuals.

if i had that ability i would probably put a tag cloud in the thought i stuck on group seth.   and maybe we coould even use that and project it out to the web page that is the front door of our domain, http://fastblogit.com/

Here is a nice looking jQuery tag cloud that would be easy to add. Colors could change if not desirable.

that works for me yes

i think mark wanted to impose a shape on it.

The examples http://mistic100.github.io/jQCloud/demo.html show that it has various shaping algorithms. The ones there are only adaptive to rectangles or circles, but it would probably be easy to plug in any shaping algorithm that one want’s to develop.

like   … these would hyperlink to tag rooms ?

Sure. You just supply the plugin with a list of tag names, links, and counts. It figures out the weight and generates the cloud wherever you tell it to put it.

i think the shaping of the tag cloud is goinging to make using it much more difficult than just allowing for a oval or rectangle or whatever is otherwise easily available.  maybe there is a way to put that in the background as long as it was not too dark.

Okay. Wasn’t really intending to make a shaping algorithm. I would hook one up if Mark makes one.

Just thinking advertizing & branding – folks do what your excitement leads you to do.  Maybe consider the aforementioned volcano experiment. yesWhooeeee!
seth 2016-01-20 13:28:04 [item 19723#43166]
i presume you are talking about The Volcano Effect.  but i don’t see the connection between  that and following your excitement. 
Mark 2016-01-20 13:31:25 [item 19723#43167]
Actually, Seth, no.  Was thinking of the excitement one might follow by jumping into an active volcano & then quantum jumping into a parallel universe just 5 seconds or so before becoming a crispy critter ! Timing is everything but go for the rush. thumbs up
