You've probably seen tags in action at del.icio.us
, and Metafilter
. (The kids are calling them folksonomies
.) I set up a similar tag folksgeist page at ORblogs called ORblogs tags
. The difference between del.icio.us et al, and ORblogs is that the Oregon Weblogs tag page is using categories that were found in RSS feeds. So while not technically tags
, the effect is similar. And I think if people started aiming their weblog post categories toward a group goal, interesting things would happen.
