PC Magazine reviews tagging
PC Magazine: "Somewhere between Web and desktop search engines lies a new breed of "community" search engines—sites where users share among themselves the bookmarks they've created and content they've encountered. Such sites can cut through the clutter that a typical Google search might return by adding the human element. After all, communities of knowledgeable, interested people can identify relevant sites with greater accuracy than a search engine. Plus, you can leverage the work already done by others and build on that base rather than repeat it."

via Micropersuasion, where there's a brief review of how each service makes out in the article. Interestingly, given the interests and preoccupations of Freshblog, gets a poor review for being difficult to understand, hard to use, and for requiring registration before allowing some search functions. Well, hey, P.C. Magazine, if I can figure it out....

I was thouroughly disgusted with their review of I can't imagine how anyone could find the interface hard to use... my brother (who is quite computer illiterate) got his account working fine in just minutes... who hired the shmucks who did the review anyway? :P
