I think the NPTech tag is a great example of what works well about tagging - I love the NPTech tag, and rely on it heavily to find relevant articles. I use it like a beacon, to find things that others feel are relevant, than as a browsing or rigorous searching mechanism. I certainly don't think that folksonomies aren't useful, just that they're often described as a replacement for taxonomies, which to my mind doesn't make any sense. Taxonomies are much more useful -if considerably higher impact to maintain - for rigorous searching and browsing when users need to find something in particular.
