[Sigia-l] Folksonomy/tag browser prototype
I recently created a tag browser for del.icio.us that takes a
hybrid-hierarchical approach to the flat structure of tags:
You can just view the demo if you don't have a del.icio.us account:

For those who aren't familiar, http://del.icio.us is a social bookmark
manager that uses tags to identify and then aggregate bookmark information
from its community of users.
The basic idea is an ad-hoc hierarchy of tags based on the way that a
particular user has defined their relationships. What are you thoughts on
this approach? Is it genuinely useful, or is it more of a novelty?
