Wouldn’t it be cool if you could visualize social bookmarking tags instead of viewing them in their current flat state?

Well, Joris Klerkx and Erik Duval felt so and so they designed a system that “attempts to visualize these structures, so that end users can explore the social bookmarks in a playful, efficient and flexible way.”

I tried it and it really is a fun way to see what’s going on in the del.icio.us system. To download the program click here, to read their paper click here.
