The "tag cloud" (far left) displays frequency distribution. More frequently used tags receive a larger font.

The "tag shadow" (big box with dots) attempts to capture that frequency distribution in a more visual medium. Try and embrace the "cloud" metaphor and imagine shining a light through the above "tag cloud." Effectively what I've done is shine that light from a whole bunch of different dirrections and found the most interesting shadows. I've then plotted the 2 most useful shadows against each other.
