I started to get rid of tags from entries on my blog because I thought a shorter tag list would be more useful, but I've figured out that is not the case. There is an expressive force in tags that is lost when you cut out the free association aspects of it. You need to be able to make those serendipitious connections, this is where ideas come from.
I'm going to review all of my previous posts, and put tags as appropriate on them, as time permits. This will allow eaiser discovery of the good stuff, and make the barriers to it lower for someone who happens in.
