Tags vs. Categories
After reading a very interesting post from Ari Paparo on the differences between Blink.com and Del.icio.us, as well as my own experience with adding information, I decided to switch from complicated hierarchical categories to flat tags.
My first observation was that I was bookmarking file format-related sites (at Furl), but that I wasn't getting around to adding them to the resources section. I thought about just making an "import from Furl".
Then I started using Del.icio.us, which makes everything so easy. It was really startling. The tags seemed to work better than the category system at Furl.
It was obvious to me that I needed a simpler/faster way to enter resources, so I switched to unvalidated tags.
File Formats: (none)
