I have been surprised, disappointed, and excited that, despite the widespread adoption of tagging across many applications, the state of the art in tagging seems firmly wedged in 2003. Surprised because there seemed, despite the expectations of many that nobody would tag things, to be a momentum building in the use of tagging. Dissappointed because I expected to be using applications that really used tagging to do some interesting things. Excited because it means the field is still open.

Matt and Paolo are behind K-Collector and Nova100, tag-based systems, so this is stuff they think a lot about.

    Well, we’re pushing to advance tagging on the desktop. Care to check it out?

    Hi David. Thanks for the link, I love the title of your post.

    There have been a number of reactions which I have tried to summarize and then use to expand my theme in a follow-up post:

    BTW: I really enjoyed the talk you gave at Google.

    Waalll, as I commented on Paolo’s site just now, for the vast bulk of readers/surfers/searchers, the whole tagging enterprise is a mystery wrapped in an enigma, and for ANYONE there is a 0 (zero, nada) payoff for the tedium of click, think, type, click — on every site? every page?

    Fuggedaboudit. Maybe for small tight communities of hip users with proximate motivation to participate. But by everyone? or even very many? for the Greater Glory of the Semantic Web?

    Good luck with that.

    Die Lebensversicherung ist in Zeiten der Abgeltungsteuer eine der letzten Anlageformen, die der Fiskus privilegiert. Denn unter bestimmten Voraussetzungen muss der Anleger nur die Hälfte der Erträge beim Finanzamt deklarieren – und das auch erst am Ende der Laufzeit. Selbst wenn dann der persönliche Steuersatz von bis zu 42 Prozent gilt, ist das immer noch günstiger, als alles mit dem Abgeltungsteuersatz von 25 Prozent zu versteuern. Doch vom 1. April an verschärfen sich die Anforderungen für die Bevorzugung.

    Dann darf die Lebensversicherung nicht mehr einfach nur eine Geldanlage sein, sondern muss sich wieder ihrem eigentlichen Zweck nähern: der Absicherung der Angehörigen im Todesfall. Dazu wird ein Mindest-Risikoschutz vorgeschrieben, der sich entweder an den eingezahlten Beiträgen, der garantierten Zahlung bei Fälligkeit oder dem Zeitwert orientiert
