After reading an articel on the menti.net blog which was about visualising different information (in this case technorati rankings) in Second Life I started thinking about what outside information could be shown in Second Life.
Also at the moment I'm quite fascinated by del.icio.us and the whole Web2.0 and tagging thing. So I started trying to connect Second Life with del.icio.us. From there on it was a little step to the idea of Tagcloudr.
It is basically the attempt to visualize my TagCloud in the SYNTHeyeSIS museum.
What it does, is, it polls the inforamtion from my del.icio.us account (thanks to Britta Gustafson for perfect support) and creates bubbles according to the TagCloud. Every bubble is a tag (sorted alphabetically) and it's size represents the count of the tag. These Bubbles are place above the main Tagcloudr object in a single helix.
You can see a text version of my TagCloud a little further down on this page.
