Thought I’d have a play around with del.icio.us tag bundles.
They are basically just title headings to help organise your tags…so it’s an alternative to an alphabetical list…also tags can be kept under multiple headings.
A good future development would be to make these bundle headings tags themselves (also with an RSS feed)…this way we could subscibe to topic tags or bundle tags as they would be called.
So at the moment tag bundles are for personally organising your tags into groups…good also to view other people’s accounts as their is now some context.
Here are my bundles.
Another view for your tag list is a tag cloud (weighted list).
See my tag bundles in the tag cloud view, just enter the word “new” in the URL, eg. http://del.icio.us/new/johnt
Yahoo! News also have a tag cloud page, see Yahoo! News Tag Soup as a browsing alternative to searching.
Although this isn’t a folksonomy (user-driven tags), the tags are formulated by a computer analysis of keywords in the page, see Content Analysis Web Service.
Here is the blog post with the RSS or HTML page of a descriptious version of all of the 3 above.
