Tagyu

Erm.. So, lemme get this straight: The point of tagging stuff is to create a free taxonomy based on your own words, the way you perceive the world around you. And the point of shared tagging, is that you can find stuff tagged by others that think like you. Well, that’s the way I look at it anyway. So, what the hell is Tagyu? A tag service for sheeple?

Erik Schonfeld says

That’s where Tagyu hopes to come in, by suggesting tags for any given text. For instance, for this post it suggests “tagging,” “del.icio.us,” “tags,” “tag,” and “tools.”

Not bad, but isn’t the point of tagging to create a human association that cannot be replicated by computers?

Pretty weird for sure – probably some use for spammers though…
