Num Sum is a folksonomy for spreadsheets.
Log in to Num Sum, make a spreadsheet, tag it, and share way.
Each entry (bookmark) on the front page has a link to the public account of the user, and also the links to the tags (unlike del.icio.us, these link to the general tag level, not the tag within the user level)
Also it doesn’t link to “?others who bookmarked this item” as not many people are going to bookmark someone else’s spreadsheet that often.
Every bookmark has a blog code so the spreadsheet can be implemented into a blog post
2 search boxes
-Search for a tag box
-General search box that searches in all fields
List of related tags for every tag
You can leave a comment on someone’s spreadsheet (bookmark)
Where are the RSS feeds??
If you click on the bookmark title in del.icio.us, it takes you to the actual external website, if you do this in Num Sum it takes you to the permalink of the actual spreadsheet within Num Sum (this is where you view the spreadsheet).
NOTE: del.icio.us has a permalink for every bookmark (if you click on “and 2 other people…”), but it is not within the users account (so you don’t own the permalink)
But we are starting to see folksonomies that are pointing to authored bookmarks within the folksonomy database itself, so your account has permalinks similar to a blog post
…other services that do this are Tagifieds, Tagsurf, and using pasta with del.icio.us.
This way when someone leaves a comment on a bookmark, they are commenting on your own permalink not on the general permalink.
So these types of social bookmarking folksonomies are becoming generic communal blog spaces that are tied together in a web of tags….maybe blogsonomies!
This makes these tools very versatile, even though they all have a specific purpose (eg. Tagifieds is meant to be used as a bulletin board), you can use the bookmark to author any text you like (just like a blog post).
In the case of Num Sum the spreadsheet can be used for budgets, lists, keeping notes, contacts, shopping list, etc…
