'Tagging' Lets Ordinary Users Organize the Internet
For those who don't know, digg.com is a technology news website that combines social bookmarking, blogging, RSS, and non-hierarchical editorial control. With digg, users submit stories for review, but rather than allow an editor to decide which stories go on the homepage, the users do. I have been a huge fan of digg.com since its incarnation. The beer drinking hosts (Kevin Rose and Alex Albrecht) who also run the site do podcasts and vidcasts as well that you can find for free in the iTunes music store.
The national show All Things Considered (9/20/05) featured a story about how del.icio.us and flickr-type 'tagging' and the trend of user-controlled content organization (Digg) is more useful than Google results, because content is filtered by humans.
