del.icio.us needs more metadata input fields, and I want to create my own.
I like that you can mark a bookmark private/public, in Furl you can mark a bookmark read/unread…I want to make my own.
I don’t want more tag fields, to me tags are topic (aboutness), all I want is to be able to sort my bookmarks in different ways, maybe you could call these facets, not sure:
1. Format - blog post, webpage, news item, journal article, search page, other (default)
This way I can sort all my bookmarks to just blog posts without having to use another tool like CrispyBlogPosts.
2. Content - review, how-to, analysis, etc…
Now I can see all my bookmarks that are just blog posts and are also reviews
3. Service - addon, bookmarklet, plugin, extension, desktop, tray, web
Now I can see all my bookmarks that are just review type of blog posts and are also desktop products
4. File - html, rss, opml, xml, etc…
Show me all bookmarks that are feeds
- maybe use 1. Format to sort which feeds are just blog feeds, news feeds, search feeds, etc…
Or can something like this be solved with folders…
Items that are blog posts can live in the blog post folder, this way I don’t have to sort, I just click on the folder.
And you could add folders eg. review folder + blog post folder + desktop folder.
In the case of Netvouz a bookmark can only appear in one folder, haven’t tested the others, but the idea is that other bookmarks with the same tag are chosen not to appear in a folder as it is not intended to be part of this folder collection.
Each folder doesn’t have a separate tag set, it is just that you can make different bucket type categories or topics, unfortunately del.icio.us tag bundles don’t have their own webpage.
But even if they did they are still not exclusive bundles, if I had a bundle called “KM Adoption”, the tags Pros and Cons may have bookmarks about the Pros and Cons of “mobile phones”…resulting in mixed content.
I guess these a bundles of tags not bundles of bookmarks.
So the idea is I can tag a post about mobile search with the tags “mobile”, “search” and I’d also like to be able to choose more than one folder to place it in. But in this case I may not care about the mobile world too much so I don’t have a folder collection about “mobiles”, but I do have a folder collection about “search”.
This post can be found at my tag “mobile” and my tag “search”.
This post can be found in my folder collection “Search Tools”.
When I see it in my Search Tools folder collection it may display the tags “mobile”, “search”…then I could say show me other bookmarks within this folder with the tag “mobile”, or show me other bookmarks within any folder with the tag “mobile”, or show me all bookmarks with the tag “mobile” from my whole account (whether it lives in a folder or not).
WTP is a webpage monitoring service, but why I bring it up is that you can have channels within the one service.
I wish del.icio.us had this, but I presume this would mean 2 different tag sets, like 2 channels within the same account.
This would be good for a related issue I have, I use 2 del.icio.us accounts for different type of content otherwise the one account gets too messy. Adding a bookmark is a hassle as I am always logging in to one account if I previously bookmarked on the other account.
I’d also like to have private tags, as I may tag an article about Folksonomies with these tags - Folksonomy, Taxonomy, Pros, Cons…these real granular analytical tags like Pros, Cons are hopeless for the community at large, it only means something to me.
What I like about Simpy is that it has minus (-) tags:
Show me Folksonomy+Pros, but if any of these Pros and Folksonomy bookmarks have the tag Taxonomy then I don’t want to see them.
