Tagging's roots in online photo collections
"Tough Talk about Tagging", a posting (September 5, 2007) from the Chronicle of Higher Education's Wired Campus blog that includes links to a few recent reflections about social tagging in 2007. (There used to be a bunch of comments that were worth reading, but a reboot of the CHE site made them disappear...which is an issue in and of itself....)
From the Pew Internet and American Life Project…later on, check out a few of their other reports… This report is waaay outdated, but still of interest. Do you use tags? Where and how?
Make your own tagclouds via Wordle (demo video because it requires Flash online; now there is a downloadable version) or WordClouds (lots of options) or TagCrowd (provides frequencies)
The usual stuff...
An example of a group blog affiliated with a traditional media outlet (the Chronicle of Higher Education). Note the use of tags ("categories")
Update: Its gone independent, but archives will still be hosted on the CHE site. Find it now at http://profhacker.com/
A great blog related to higher education and technology. Not via a corporate platform; he rolls his own..

A cautionary tale...
