Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Just for fun, how could I go about creating a navigable tag tree based on Stack Overflow?

It would be interesting to see the following somehow:

  • Which technologies generate the most problems?
  • Which technologies' questions are the most answered?
  • Which technologies have the most helpful users (highest rep), and get answered most quickly?
  • When is the best time of the week to ask questions for a given technology?

based on this, am flagging… – adolf garlic Nov 13 '09 at 15:18

You could first try creating a query at StatOverflow which uses a data dump of the whole site. Here is a link to the schema for that site.

If you want to roll your own.. I would start your work by getting your own copy of the Stackoverflow Data Dump:

This is a dump of all of the useful information about the site up to Nov09.
