It's written in ruby and running on mysql+apache. The code is not impressive, but it is up on github. It was originally implemented a month or so ago using a screenscaper to get the data, and has recently been converted to use the api.

I'm trying to incorporate as many other StackApps apps as I can in my aggregator application and yours is a cool one I'd like to use. However, it only seems to support Stack Overflow. Any chance you can build in a paramter to change the API site? – Mark Henderson Jun 8 '10 at 23:20

You could also display the top (10) tags per day/week/month.

A search form for checking arbitrary tags would be nice too - you only link to a very small few. Bonus points for autocomplete.
