Tag who?

Your tags, smarter
Haven’t used it much yet – just a little, but it looks to be pretty cool.
See also the Tagyu For Movable Type interface, the Neato » Ultimate Tag Warrior for WordPress, and the REST web services interface. Ill definitely be playing with the WP and RESTful interfaces.

My only concern is that automating tags, if it becomes widespread, would potentially homogenize the tag-scope of an item (or of the world).  As Tagyu selects from already tagged values and more people use those values, the overall breadth of tags about a specific subject would become narrower.  You’d have to get a pretty large base of user for that, though, and all of them using the tags in the same tag-space.

Later: Tagyu’d this post – the resultant TTags come from it’s best guess.
