May 26: Tagging is Fabulous! It’s Also Crap!

Moderator: Shimon Rura (Weblog: Shimonolog)

Shimon Rura will lead a discussion on “tagging” — using subject-oriented links to distribute and discover information across blogs and websites using services such as Technorati, Del.icio.us, and Flickr. From Shimon’s high-speed summary:

  • Part 1: 5 minutes on what tagging is, and some of the major services
    incorporating tagging

  • Part 2: 10 minutes on why tagging is totally amazing and what new forms of
    community discourse and organization it will create, and how it will
    inevitably pervade all information systems and knowledge structures within 5
    years

  • Part 3: 10 minutes on why tagging is a lame hack with no future, that will
    never succeed past the early adopters and in the end will prove to be a huge
    waste of everyone’s time

  • Part 4: 15-30 minutes group discussion
