Interesting tags are great. However I would like to be able to specify languages for language agnostic tags.

I got the following interesting tags:

  • c#
  • multithreading
  • .net
  • spark-view-engine
  • sockets
  • nosql
  • design-patterns
  • architecture

The problem is that I am not interested in all architecture/multithreading/other language agnostic tag questions, just those that are in my favorite languages.

It would be nice if I could define my own buttons ([architecture] AND ([.net] OR [c#] OR []) instead of clicking on the interesting tag buttons.

A custom search wont do since it's sorted by relevance and not by timestamp.

An interesting idea.

You can already do a similar thing if you save a URL of such search and add it as a bookmark. If your browser has bookmark toolbars you can even make it a button, then.
