Good luck with that.. my tags are completely, 100%, undeniably out of control... lots of good stuff in those tags.. but no way to navigate them - I actually have found myself going BACK to Google to re-search for stuff I already know I've tagged (so sad, I know).

What seems fantastic to me one day, is boring or confusing the next!


Marc: I think I might need a tag cleaning lady ... but I clean my own house and car .. sometimes.

Actually, I can navigate my tags in delicious - tag things with more than one tag. What I need to do is use some of the delicious search and replace tools to clean it up and perhaps trash some stuff.

In summary, I need to be more of an information curator than an information packrat.


Great observations!

The bottom line is tagging doesn't work. It will turn out to be just a phase and a fad that will last until everybody else has this aha! moment you just experienced. It takes way more time than anyone expects to organize your tags and keep them organized.
