Description

Recently, I have been investigating collaborative tagging systems. Tagging systems are based around "tags": (usually) single word, user-contributed, keyword annotations. The big difference between tags and keyword annotations is that users can contribute tags, whereas keyword annotations are usually added by authors or librarians. This allows tagging to scale to massive and dynamic corpora on the web.
