The adoption of tagging, which is really just cataloging by civilians, strikes the author as one of the most interesting aspects of the collaborative Web. People appreciate the need for controlled vocabulary, consistency, and tagging for retrieval as well as description. Enter Search Cloudlet, which offers not just a tag cloud of search results but a cloud of sources mentioned in the news, the most frequently appearing domains in a search result, or the most common Twitter hash tags for a concept. In addition to the tag cloud option, you can see clouds of other information depending on the search tool you are using. Search Cloudlet bases its clouds on the search results page you are viewing.
