Looking back on my del.icio.us tags, what are they telling me?

I’ve probably spent more time thinking about whether I should or should not ever tag anything new that I find interesting with “web 2.0” then one person should. Actually I started to notice my own self trend a couple months ago on my blog when I started to shift from the tag “web 2.0” and tagged more so with the word “culture”. Part of the evolution is that a lot of the web 2.0 social like applications are not that new, though they’re expanding ideas of how people communicate and interact and in theory moves culture along. I’ve also started to clean up my bundles of tags inside del.icio.us – the simple way is to fit all tags into one, two or three of the category bundles is Business, Education and or Entertainment. They’re so general it would be hard for not one of my tags to fall into place. A second level of bundles that I’m considering is Culture, Social and or Technology. If I actually have the time to do those bundles of tags, the last three bundle levels would possibly include Geography, Personalities and or Vague Title of Design.
