.... Tag Queries for a Thursday Early Afternoon ....

I. Are there implementions/technologies that can display the degree of
association/co-occurence of Tags within a corpus (and enable one to
navigate in one way or another (e.g., tag cloud and/or other

Can We Think Co-Citation ? [:-)

II. Are there implementations/technologies that allow one to designate
the relevative importance of a tag for a section and/or corpus of
text? Major / Minor Importance Would Be A Good Beginning (e.g. Bold
vs. Non-Bold)

BTW: Certainly The Ability To Indicate Relative Importance by Font
Size / Style Would Be More Interesting [:-)

III.  Are there implementations/technologies that allow one to sort
sub-document tagged text by select criteria?
For example:  Have the ability (re)sort tagged text sections (e.g.
paragraphs) such that the most relevant  sorted sections are displayed
before those of less relevance (e.g. sections with tags that are more
'associated' or co-occurring

BTW: Tagging Is Not Limited To 'Text' (Can Also Apply To Photos
(Flickr), Videos (YouTube), Other Media .
