this project looks interesting, but i have to ask what's the point really? i'm just not sold on tagging yet. call me a traditionalist, but a controlled vocabulary implemented by a trained professional is the only way to ensure that all the information can be throughly searchable. Tags aren't controlled and it seems like the only way they could be viable is from a large volume of metadata created, compiled and analyzed.
