Dude, that Cumulus Tag Cloud is cool!

Re: tag cloud

Funny, I started using tags just because and suddenly found myself thinking "I need to do something cool with this." Hence the cloud (it's a Drupal module). The first time I saw it was over at Justin Ryan's "Underblog" Website. Anyhow, glad you like it.

Hundred percent of companies

First of all. Great show. Keep them coming. As for that one hundred percent of companies report, that's assuming Gartner's survey includes 100% of companies. I'm pretty sure my office was never contacted. Maybe we don't rate.
