Week 8 – Tagging, Folksonomies & Technorati

This week we’ll be looking more closely at del.icio.us and Technorati, two Web 2.0 applications that take serious advantage of tagging (we’ve already looked at a few –Flickr, LibraryThing, and blogs all use tags).

We’ll also be reading and blogging about a few perspectives on Library 2.0.
