Tag Galaxy is pretty cool. [Flickr, tags, photos, fun for all]

Neat. Also needs a way to manage my tag selection. I.e., I want to keep "solar" and "energy" but ditch "power".

That is pretty slick, a way to speed up the animation would be nice as well. Also a 2nd for being able to remove tags - some search strings should never include "hairy".

That is pretty cool!

Cute, but irritated my inner UI geek until I turned it into a game of stacking the most tags possible before only one photo is available.

10 tags.

I made a spinny globe covered in bacon. That alone redeems any UI badness I had to endure.

Very cool, and a neat way to visualize tags. Thanks!

This is very cool. It really shows what you can do in 3d with Flash, as well as what it's limits are. It works pretty well on my high-end workstation, but on a Mac Book Air, it gets choppy when looking at the globe of pictures.

It isn't the best UI ever, but it sure isn't the worst!

When did 3D in flash become big? In the last couple days I've been sent to a bunch of sites that do 3D stuff, and I'd only seen anything like that every once in a while before that...

Holy crap, this totally reminds me of those latex-plastic cubes (maybe 4 in3) from the 70's which held photos and was mounted on a revolving stand so you could spin it to see each facet. Only this is much better.
