Christina's LIS Rant

  So, I'm playing with this new Feedster tag thingie..
...only I don't actually know how it works or what it's for. In general, it's kind of a way to post-annotate a blog posting. It was linked to by M2M.

Here's the script developed by Scott Rafer (found here):

 [open]form name="tags" method="get" action="http://bookmarks.feedster.com/submit.php"[close]
[open]input type="text" name="tags" size="15"[close]
[open]script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript" [close]
document.write('[open]input type="hidden" name="uri" value="');
document.write(location.href);
document.write('"[close]');
[open]/script[close]
[open]input type="submit" value="Tag this"[close]
[open]/form[close]
Substitute a greater than or less than sign as appropriate for [open] and [close].

If you're using blogger, put the macro in for your uri value (IOW, put something that looks like <$ > in). If you don't do that, all of the tags apply to your whole blog. It doesn't look like it takes phrases, even in quotes. Maybe use wiki words?

This is closer to the bleeding edge than I normally ride but why not. It's Monday and the world is new.

Thank you for giving it a try so early. We'll be getting it fixed up in the coming weeks, please let me know what you think as it progresses.
 
What do you think of the value of introducing something like this for A&I databases? i.e students can even put the course name in the tag if they want
 
I can see a lot of people would want to do that. I can also see how it would work really well for exactly what you said (the name of an assignment or course). It would have to be on a per-site basis. The library admins would need to be able to delete. If someone made some really inappropriate tags, how do you keep that from affecting the perceived value of the database. I'm thinking that you all probably shouldn't jump on this bandwagon. IMHO.
