I'm having an issue using del.icio.us for categories and technorati tags in blogger, because technorati allows multi-word tags and del.icio.us will only allow single words. I have hyphenated (geek alert) star-trek, sci-fi and how-to. I guess that the tags are of limited use, though, if we're all doing different things. John-Kerry, JohnKerry, John Kerry & all his various capitalisations and mis-spellings.
Do we need an international tagging protocol? Will that take all the fun and flexibility out of the practice? Is it more important to be consistent or to be customiseable?
This is the wave of the future, for sure, but there's still some kinks to be ironed out.
