The Tags Networks Narrative is, according to its website, “a unique speculative project exploring the potential for collaborative keyword tagging (folksonomy) in narrative research” – at first I thought they wanted to work out how to write stories using tagging, but it seems they instead want to work out how narrative researchers might or do use tags and social bookmarking to research narratives.

Not even sure how I found that site. Oh well. I wonder what their plan is?

    Our plan is to take over the world, one tag at a time. Seriously, what we’re interested in is examining tagging’s potential to create a “common language”. That said, there are definitely some interesting things that could be done with using tagging to tell stories. Something cognate to that is this project which is an exercise in using socialbookmarking and annotation to tell stories.
