Steal this bookmark!

Like I said before, tagging is hot. Salon has a nice article looking into the matter, balancing the pros and cons of this phenomenon. I think Microsoft's MacLaurin sums it up best when he says:

"I'd say it's more a matter of figuring out who knows where the good stuff is, and less about finding new friends by tagging. I cannot imagine forming a relationship with someone because we tag our photos a similar way on Flickr."

  1. Great article! Raises interesting questions on top-down and bottom-up taxonomies. I reminds me of in a sense (bottom-up KM). I believe both have value in certain contexts and for certain purposes. For on the edge information, bottom-up tagging seems more appropriate to me.
