Is it possible to see which tags are the fastest growing in a certain period, say 2011?

I see that C# is the most popular tag on StackOverlow, but wondered if there were any tags that have come from nowhere this year. I suspect F# grew a lot, but I would be interested to see if that is quantifiable on StackOverflow

Just keep in mind that a tag's popularity on SO does not necessarily have any correlation with a language's popularity in the real world (which is, itself, a score that could be measured in numerous different ways). –  Pops Dec 21 '11 at 13:57
