Introducing Tagyu

Freshness Warning
This article is over 14 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current.

Say hi to Tagyu. He’s a clever little guy that really knows his tags. Tell him what you’re talking about and he’ll tell you what tags you might want to use.

The basic premise of Tagyu is to let other people help you tag your content. Tagyu comapres what you’re writing to what other people around the web are writing. It looks at how they’ve tagged their content and uses that informtion to give you some ideas about how to tag yours. Look at any tag and you’ll see items from that match that tag. Tagyu will show you how those items are tagged at and then show you what tags it suggests for each item. Every time a tag is shown, it’s clickable, so you can free-associate all day long.

Tagyu learns by reading content, so it will become better behaved with age, which is more than I can say about your children. A web services interface is coming, natch.
