My panel idea for SXSW Interactive next spring has been approved!
Tag, You're It
Services such as Delicious, Flickr, and others allow users to tag various kinds of content. Some people use the tags for personal information management -- making things easier to find -- and others use tags to discover certain kinds of content -- such as pictures of puppies. But are people tagging content with those uses in mind? For use by others? Or just for personal use? This panel will consider trends in tagging and how people are actually using tags -- not how cool and important folksonomies are.
Thanks for those of you who may have expressed interest in the topic. I'm peopling the panel now and will let Media Dieticians know who will be participating as soon as it's all worked out. Should be awesome.
