Tag Cloud Poetry

I wandered lonely as a tag cloud...

By way of academhack and writer response theory, here are some lovely posts on tag cloud poetry.

"In the world of tag metadata - folksonomies, fauxonomies, etc. - there are a few high-profile services and a million up-and-coming. ... Many pieces of digital text art in the last two years have centered around the use of publicly available tagging - in particular search visualizations and generators."
I enjoy this found art in much the same way I enjoy the recycled words of the spamland videos which take as their text the "semi-sensical text found in the filter-busting portion of spam messages."
