I’ve decided to eliminate tags and will instead use categories for annotating posts. I’ve occasionally posted links that refer to tags; unfortunately, these will break. I’ve eliminated any internal links that referred to tags, in some cases replacing them with links to Wikipedia pages (some of which reflect the efforts of the readership here!).
Eventually I’d like to use some of the capabilities I’ve helped develop at Endeca to tag posts. But I’m not quite ready to figure out how to install and maintain an Endeca instance for this blog. But it’s something to think about as I approach a thousand posts.
