I use it (UTW Plugin) on my blog/site. Mostly because I was new to  
tagging and really liked the idea of offering a tag cloud to the  
user. Since my initial install of this plug I've come across other  
coding examples to build my own tag cloud. Here is one: http:// 

I've also not come to the understanding that WP can use it's own  
categories as well tags. I had no idea this was so functional. I tend  
to think of content categories as a separate concept from tags. Here  
is a article I read a while back that for some reason set my bias  
against using categories as tags. http://lorelle.wordpress.com/ 
2006/03/01/tags-are-not-categories-got-it/. since reading through  
these emails I've been playing with just using categories and setting  
up my permalinks so my posts show up in the URL like '/tag/...'.  
Seems simple enough and functional.

All of this makes me wonder about this WP pages http://wordpress.com/ 
tags/ Are tags being offered in the next WP release?
