Why do we tag?

About: Scobleizer ? Tara at Riya is trying to learn about tagging

Why tag? That's what Tara Hunt is asking about. I tag cause Steph Booth told me I'd be a loser if I didn't tag. I don't wanna be a loser! So I tag. Why do you? Why not?

... my comment
I tag because it weaves the items in my memory together. It has become an essential step in remembering things. Since fastblogit opened last August we have created over 2835 items. Now how are you gonna remember all of those without tagging them?
lots of other good responses on the Scobleizer...

Most of the time, I use tags to add context to what I've written. Not to classify it. Not to organize it. Not to plug it in among the topics that others are writing about. Tags have a place beyond taxonomies and classifications and categorization. They are a beautiful, wide-open opportunity to add subtext to your writing. To sew meaning into the fabric of someone else's reading experience.
