More (on)

Here's an article on the creator of, Joshua Schachter. He's 32! Wow. What's significant about a service/ tool like is the concept of "tagging". Here's an explanation of "tagging", written by a librarian, which I think other librarians will be able to relate to.

    With "tagging" "democratise", will it lead to more efficient searching
    for one and all? In online searching and for people responsible for
    organising info. resources (be it print, digitized, born-digital,
    etc), the key concern is always to improve both/either precision
    and/or recall. With everyone assigning tags, I sometimes wonder if all
    these efforts will translate to better search and retrieval, or is the
    world better off leaving it to professionals to organise information
    resources, or maybe have a hybrid system?
