inspired by britta, here is a list of my top 10 tags on delicious, annotated.
michigan - lots of links from around the state
annarbor - lots of links from around town
library - links from and about libraries from around the world
blog - these are primarily the "about" pages of blogs
superpatron - it would be convienent if these were auto-summarized for my superpatron blog
google - an exhaustive tour of the google archipelago
books - many of which I am not reading because of time spent on the net
food - recipes, restaurants, and f00dzorz
design - not a tag I usually generate myself, so these are copies of others
howto - tutorials, references, instruction guides, answers to common questions
my other typically atypical delicious tagging use is to use long tags that no one else uses, and that I use only once or a small number of times. to illustrate:
☃ - the unicode "snowman" character and its travels
chicken-chicken-chicken - encompassing Ig Nobel prize winning research, municipal ordinances and recipes
warning:indirect-selflink - pointers to articles that point to things that I've written
party-like-its-1908 - plus similar links to each other year, noting history or relevant narratives of time
generally I like to give every article some unique tag, along some axis of a person's name, a date, a location, or a nice turn of phrase from the thing quoted.
