Processing, Visualisation,, Tags and Radii
Because Mike is right, radii are beautiful, I cooked up a little sketch I'd been thinking about to show connections between the tags in my links.

Posts are dispersed on the time axis, left to right, and a circle is drawn connecting posts which share tags. The circle is drawn with a lower alpha value, so darker circles mean that more than one tag is shared. It's not that meaningful, save from showing that I use more tags per post than when I started using (nothing a quick graph wouldn't show too), but it's a pleasing pattern never the less.

Plimpplampplettere, by the way, is almost certainly made up, and not really the Dutch word for "skimming stones" (Thanks to Ron for clarification).
