I am rather new (read: old fnhisoaed) in regards of to the new fad tag clouds. I get the concept and I understand it can be useful. But the times they actually have been useful to me are less than zero. Ok, I have used it some times but only in the spirits of voyerism Oh, look this guy likes this too. I certainly hope they will disappear since they take too much space and mostly afflict damage to the usability. So, is it the future? Let's hope not.
