in thread RFC: Conceptual association

At one level the tag cloud is not what I was looking for. It seems to indicate only the importance of concepts not their relationships.

On the other hand it meets the broader, possibly unstated, objective admirably. It utilizes the data to provide an attractive visual interface to the data.

On the other hand the first phase of data that will become available represents relationships rather than value.

    Unconventional use for a cloud, but could it work to:
    1. gather stats for all combinations axb, axc, axd,..., bxc, bxd, ..., cxd, cxe, cxf ..., thus expressing the relationship quantitatively;
    2. use the magnitudes of those relationships to drive the tag-cloud generator?

      Disclaimer - I am totally naive about tag clouds.
