Tagging resources for the UUA General Assembly.
Scott Wells has proposed a very simple, very useful way for bloggers and others to assemble a resource guide to this summer's UUA General Assembly. Whenever you find a web page that is relevant to the General Assembly — from business resolutions and background materials to great sandwich shops near the convention center — tag it at the bookmarking site del.icio.us. Use as many tags as you like, as long as you also include uuaga and 2007. (Here's a handy guide to using tags.) Then others can search del.icio.us for pages tagged uuaga+2007 and they'll find it all. In time, the resource list will grow large enough that users will want to try refined searches, like uuaga+2007+restaurants or uuaga+2007+worship.
Del.icio.us is incredibly easy to use. I have a bookmark in my browser that saves the title and URL of whatever page I'm reading to my del.icio.us account and asks me to add tags and a description. After I've saved it, I'm sent right back to the page I was reading. I've found it so useful, my del.icio.us account has become my most rudimentary blog.
Great idea, Scott!
