Folksonomies

Today I added a folksonomy browser to the menticulture blog. That's a very posh way of saying you can click on the 'Categories' link in the menu and see a list of all the tags (or categories) used on this blog.

The clever bit I like is that (like other sites using folksonomies - or tagging) the most used tags are highlighted by big fonts and colours.

Maybe after a year or so it'll tell me what my public preoccupations really are - as of today they are podcasts, science, learning, literature, media and the endlessly self-similar universe :)

You can see folksonomies at places like del.icio.us, Flickr, Ning.com, Common Times, Technorati, and a good analysis of them at The Shifted Librarian.

Note: because of high volumes of spam, html tags and texile markup have been disabled, and the menticulture machine will think your comment is spam if you use any html tags (eg: <h1> or <a>), or textile syntax (e.g. [url]). Please use just plain text, and if you want to post a link, just type the url, and it will automagically become a link :-) Thanks!
