Tags and Technorati

Filed under: General — timbomb @ 9:29 am

So, lots of people talked about Technorati yesterday. One of the newer things the Technorati engine can do is look for things tagged with the same word, which means that all the people blogging and flickr-ing and del.icio.us-ing about Blogtalk Downunder collectively build a page like this when they use the ‘blogtalkdownunder’ tag.

Keyword tagging is a decentralised means of categorising more cheaply, but its also a way to “facilitate serendipity”, weaving together conversations more easily than with referrer logs and trackback.

Or that’s what I reckon.

  1. A great idea, this way we can build an easy to reference body of knowledge and ideas from the conference.
