Seen on Flickr

Out of the
clubs and
//into the
libraries


See the good story on tagging from CNET. Also awesome visual for how Flickr works with Yahoo.

Thanks Luke. Sounds like we are on the same track, as far as incorporating other life-experiences (grocery stores, clubs, etc.) into our libraries--and incorporating our libraries into our other life experiences (book window shopping, etc.)

I just had a thought, too--what if a novel snippet was served to you as an appetizer at a restaurant?

Of course, it would be microcontent--calorie free(!)--and based entirely upon the context of your entree: If you order huevos rancheros, you are served a spicy novel set in ancient Mayan ruins. If you order ravioli, you get a Venician thriller. If you order a stir-fry, you get a Beijing biography! (Of course, if you order vegetarian, you get the award-winners from the category...)
