I finally found the tag folksonomy blog and it was helpful in trying to understand the zeitgeist of tags. I think some of the information could be incorporated into the suggest tag synonym pages. I was thinking about a synonym between motorola and freescale. That may be wrong for many other reasons, but I decided why the heck should I try to improve these tags. What do business concepts have to do with programming?
The redesigned tag page describes tags as a map. This is opposed to the folksonomy idea on the other blog entry. So what kind of map do we have? Topographical, road, political, climate, economic, food production, etc are all types of maps. Should the tags only be about programming? I see tags that are,
- business oriented. motorola freescale.
- problem domains. phonenumbers piechart
- describe posters. student firsttime
and ones I find useful that are related to programming concepts. I see that the folksonomy concept is good for organic growth and classification. Could different classifications of tags have a different colour, font and/or box shape? For some reason, the tag blacklist is not a solution that was implemented.
