a tag

It would be nice to have a tag room  where each item in the room was a tag.  The titles of the items would be the tag names.  On these tag items would be a description and discussion of how people use that tag.

This is such an item and the tag room is a tag

Tags

  1. a tag
  2. folksonomy

or maybe tag folksonomy
what is with this "tag tag" stuff .. that is a syntax error.  the room is folksonomy.
did you notice I made a tag called "tag folksonomy" i.e. the folksonomy of tags?
... what is gonna be your distinciton between "folksonomy" and "tag folksonomy" ?
ok, got it .  but i don't think that compounding with "tag" necessarily does it for me.  maybe something more specific.  How about "nameof" ... the name of a thing is not the thing named.  so your tag would be nameof folksonomy ... the word "nameof" then twists us from the territory to the map .  What say thee ?

Mark de LA says
maybe tag of tags ?

nameof sounds geeky maybe meta-tag or meta-folksonomy ? something else please
well it might be geeky but it does name the thing precisely and unambiguously.  Look how it worked in my sentence: The name of the thing is not the thing named.   for me "meta", which is certainly a related concept, is clouded with all kinds of baggage so i would read "meta-tag" as kind of a .  It makes you think that there is something more to a meta tag than just a tag.  All tags are meta in the sense that they are not the items tagged ... so it is like that term is trying to name which reflection you are talking about in a long string of reflections of a mirror looking at a mirror.  "nameof" tells you a specific relationship between a thing and a name of a thing. 

but is open to suggestions, of course, at some point we will fall back to which tag catches on and is used correctly by more people. 

Mark de LA says
Well, just out of the shoot, one is about the folksonomy of tags and the other is just about folksonomy in general. The former is meta to the latter.
