Eye Candy For Developers

There are two new projects on the ‘net which might influence the way we see software in the future (in the literal sense). code_swarm can visualize the CVS history of a project in a cunning way and Wordle creates tightly packed tag clouds.

What I find especially interesting about Wordle is that it creates the tag cloud in real time (as you watch) using a Java applet. If you happen to have Java 6 installed, the animations are very smooth, almost like Flash.
