Lost in a Tag Cloud

Michael's Tag Cloud

(What can you learn about folks by their Tag Cloud?")

Anne down in Australia turned me on to this term while we were preparing for my talk with Skype and Jybe. ! I love it. Have you gotten lost in tags yet? Now there clusters too!!

Tag Cloud: A tag cloud is a visual depiction of content tags used on a website. Often, more frequently used tags are depicted in a larger font or otherwise emphasized. Selecting a single tag within a tag cloud will generally lead to a collection of items that are associated with that tag.

Try these:

Flickr-Stalking: (verb) To browse through someone's photostream with the intent of learning all about how they live their lives: where they go, what pets they have, what their living rooms look like, etc, includes in-depth investigations of their tags and their contact's photostream and tags as well.

Flickr adds features


I'm intrigued by the idea of clustering - associated tags for groups of like images, such as the Michigan Clusters here. It made me realize I need to pay attention to my tagging. If I want labrador retrievers and get to this page, I get to see all the variances in tags for those sweet yellow, black and chocolate hounds!

One of the benefits of pointing folks to clusters of images is that they will find more images that might not have appeared with just one tage. Ponder then, how we might set up our catalogs with this method. Here's the history cluster page... food for thought yes?

Demonstrating Flickr

When the BBC is looking at Flickr in their Creative Futures Knowledge Building session, we should take note. Libraries should be looking at how powerful inage sharing can be.

Flickr as medium for Proof of Concept

I've been talking to groups of librarians for a week and a half... ..and I've hit on gaming everytime. I used Jenny's slideshow as a proof of concept of what some libraries can do with gaming as well as how librarians are taking to it. Are you diving in to gaming? Here's the link:


These images speak volumes.

Librarian's Desks @ Flickr

Michael's Desk @ SJCPL

Friday I'm talking about Presence at the Indiana Online User's group in Indy. Coolest thing is Glenn Peterson will be there keynoting about the totally cool Hennepin CO PL site!!

While we are pondering presence, I think it's important for librarians to be seen out and about in the thriving virtual communities we know and love. For example, librarian's desks at flickr:


Here's mine:


Flickr friends...feel free to tag away!
