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, Flickr,, Common Times, Technorati, and a good analysis of them at The Shifted Librarian.
