automatic bookmarks and intentional bookmarks


I would say that the search history that you get from Google is an example of automatic bookmarks. If you go to a place via a google search, Google will automatically mark it here.  These marks are well indexed and it is relatively easy to return to find them again even many months after your initial visit.  For example i visited a page about round cornered css boxes that showed one box staying in a fixed position on the screen.  I didn't booklmark the page but i studied it in detail and it ended up influencing my thinking about the web designs that i was working on.  About a month later i wanted to refer to it again but could not find it in my fastblogit bookmarks ... oh well, after some 5 minutes rooting around in my search history, there it was. 

Since it is an influential page it deserves an intentional bokmark, see 2716. An intentional bookmark is far easier to find than the automatic sort. Just type in a fragment of a tag that you remember about the item in the live search box, and boom, there it is ... the 5 minutes of rooting around can usually be avoided .

Well manual and automatic tagging will be equally target by spammers; but manual tagging has the advantage of policing by the comunity. You do not shit on your own door step.

Our site already gets substantial from tagging. If you are inside the community, then you can find things there far more rapidly than you can find them at google.

I bloged about this here. An interesting confluence of events happened all withing this same hour: (1) guesst-7779 visited my article, (2) i saw that and review the article myself (3) your post came into my aggregator. Kewl, don't you think?
