I have never failed to find a product I was lookign for by searching. What value can tagging products really create in a world where catalogs are searchable? This is beyond me - just when we figure out how to automagically index the internet, some-one comes along and decides that we should do it manually instead - what's up with that?

The tags I find useful are the ones I've configured my services to "listen" for and react to. But if you think about it, tagging is an unecessary intermediate step if I just had that functionality where I needed it in the first place .... I think tagging's an intermediate step to a better internet - amzn and yhoo are probably wasting investor $'s here.
