Tagging - Your are it! - When will it go mainstream?

Over the last few months, I have been doing a lot of reading and research about tagging and I am delighted to see that a group of experts has launched a new blog dedicated to the topic.

The blog is appropriately called "Your are it - a blog on tagging."

For anyone that wants to learn more and read more about the subject, I strongly recommend taking a peak. The postings are very insightful and the discussions and comments are very rich.

The more I read about tagging, the more I have the sense that we are close to a tipping point. So far, while tagging has been making the rounds with early adopters lots of people still ask "what is tagging?" I think this will change in 2005, for better and for worse.

1) I think tagging is truly coming of age and demonstrating that it is a great archiving tool for unstructured / user generated content.

2) Unfortunately, I think there will be too many people entering this space and like social networking before it, I think it will initially be over hyped.

In fact, this might already be happening. I cannot blame them because I have to admit that we are working on a few exciting new websites that will also take advantage of tagging among many other useful tools.

As the race to tag the web unfolds, it will be interesting to see how this space evolves before the dust settles. Fortunately, I get to work with a set of super bright and talented folks so it should be a fun ride.
