Jeffrey Zeldman writes a disparaging post about tag clouds, or interfaces that reveal the popularity of tags by making them larger, as can be seen here and here.

He says they’re the process and not the music…he also writes about popularity, and how popularity indices like blogdex aren’t quite fair. A very interesting post, well-written, and sure to get you thinking.

By the way, Zeldman’s got comments now. Be sure to read them for this article.
