Tags on Daily Kos are two years old today. They were announced by kos in this diary on Oct 10, 2005. Like all rambunctious little children given very free rein, tags have behaved very nicely and very badly, but on the whole it seems like a good idea to have brought them into the world.
So it's time to give them a little birthday present...
The Daily Kos tagcloud (available here but I don't recommend clicking the link unless you have a long long time to wait) is cumulative, since the beginning of dKos tagging. What's more interesting is to look at how the tagcloud has changed over time. I've created weekly tagcounts, from Sunday to Sunday, since tags were born two years ago. These are not cumulative from the beginning of time, but counts of tags attached to diaries posted during one-week periods.
