Today, opening stackoverflow i have read 3 or 4 times the tag QT. For sure is something totally random but this made me think about a friend that this morning talked about how .net is gettin in shadow and c++ is coming back and made me think also about a kind of infovis on stackoverflow data.

Has any infovis about tag trend (for example) ever been tried on stackoverflow?

Speaking about tag trend during the last 3 years for example, have you ever thought about some statistical reduction of data (because I assume that data are too many per hours for making a complete analysis)?

Could you be interested in some kind of project on stackoverflow infovis?

EDIT: thanks to comment i have just found .. nice place where to start for some infovis! but.. are there some already done good infovis project?

As long as you don't need very up to date data you can use the data dump and do all the statistical analysis you want on it. – Servy Dec 5 '12 at 21:59

Stack Exchange recently had a data-visualization contest with several interesting entries, including a tag treemap for SO.
