Delicious Tag Bundles

Do you use tag bundles in Delicious? Did you know that Delicious had tag bundles? Do you know what a tag bundle is? Let’s start with the what. Tag bundles are groups of tags that have to do with the same subject – it’s a way for you to organize your tags into smaller batches. I can’t remember when Delicious added tag bundles, but it was after I already had  [ Read More ]

No more anonymous Flickr tags

Have you ever tagged someone else’s photo on Flickr? I have, but usually only when I’m in it. I guess anonymous tagging happens more than we realize and so Flickr has now added the ability to see who added the tag: Flickr has quietly made a big change to its tagging system, which from now on will show who added a tag to a photo or video. As Flickr’s Community  [ Read More ]

Fun with Wordle

my tags Originally uploaded by nengard I decided to play with Wordle. I didn’t have a paper or article that I wanted to use, so instead I decided to generate a cloud for my bookmarks. I think this is the perfect image of me – open source and libraries being my biggest terms!! This is a fun little generator. I think I’ll play with it some more. Technorati  [ Read More ]

Information R/evolution

I just love every video I’ve seen by this man! Michael Wesch, Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology and author/director of The Machine is Us/ing Us has another video addressing the issues brought up in Everything is Miscellaneous (a book I’m finally reading now that I have some time):

Tag Clustering in Flickr

I am giving a workshop on Flickr next month and I have to admit that there isn’t a conference that goes by where I don’t learn something new about Flickr (that I should have known). I’m at the NFAIS Humanities Rountable and Tim Spalding has just finished his intro to LibraryThing talk in which he showed tag clustering on Flickr – a feature introduced over 2 years ago!!! Tim used  [ Read More ]

H2O Playlists

Did you know about these? I didn’t. H2O playlists are more than just a cool, sleek technology — they represent a new way of thinking about education online. An H2O Playlist is a series of links to books, articles, and other materials that collectively explore an idea or set the stage for a course, discussion, or current event. H2O Playlists make it easy to: transform traditional syllabi into interactive, global  [ Read More ]


Rob Cagna from University of Pennsylvania came to talk to us about PennTags. The last time I saw this it was a bit rough – it has grown up a lot since it’s birth!! PennTags is like for members of the Penn community. They can save pages from anywhere on the web, from the catalog and from campus resources to PennTags and share it with the world. They can  [ Read More ]

Tagging the Physical

Tags: Keywords to describe digital objects Originally uploaded by cambodia4kidsorg. I mentioned in my summary of David Weinberger’s keynote at KMWorld & Intranets how you can only put the book in one place – you can only give it one label – on the web you have the ability to apply multiple labels/categories to an object. Well, I just saw this picture via Tame the Web – and thought it  [ Read More ]

Usually people who are fans of taxonomies do not get along with folksonomy fans. Our speaker, Tom Reamy, made sure that we knew going in that he was on the taxonomist’s side of things before he started talking. The funny thing was the next thing he said was that Library Scientists and Folksonomists (or believers in folksonomies) get along even worse that taxonomists and folksonomists – coming straight from Internet  [ Read More ]

Getting the hang of tagging

Now that I have the handy plugin to add tags to my posts (and that technorati is actually indexing my site) I need to get the hang of tagging my posts. Sometimes I remember and other times – not so much So if you see a post of mine that should have tags give me a good poke and tell me to add them. Technorati Tags: tagging, tags
