tag, you're it!

We have tags for bookmarks and for pictures, but what about music? Maybe audioscrobbler should allow users to tag what they are listening to.

One of the things I like about del.icio.us is that readers add tags to bookmarks, not authors. It’s more useful to know how a group of readers tag a page than how a single author might tag a page. It’s too easy for an author to have a limited tag vocabulary at the time of writing. This is one of the main reasons why I don’t have categories for my blog posts.

I wish Flickr would allow other people to tag photos. (Ick, I’m spouting mis-information. Thanks for correcting me, Eric.)

Oh, and in case you’re not on the del.icio.us mailing list, Joshua is experimenting with bar graphs.

I’ve been thinking just the same thing about music tagging. Thus, my cohorts and I recently transformed our anyone-can-upload-music-which-then-anyone-can-listen-to-and-buy-downloads-or-CDs-of website, Music For Dozens, so that you can tag our artists’ songs. We are still in the very early stages of refining and adding features to this new version of the site, but come on by and give us some feedback about how you think it works.
