The Mouse Mouth Chronicles (Part II): Yahoo Tech

Before lunch, we had a session from Yahoo! about the notion of social media. Great stuff, including a preview of Yahoo! Tech, a new content offering that brings consumers right into the mix. Yahoo! has really adopted the notion of bringing the power of social computing right into every offering. They’ve made this a part of their brand platform for the last several months.

My only question remains is whether or not the concept of tagging and folksonomies will jump from their content and publishing practice and into the actual search algorithm. Tagging offers a lot of benefit for the organization of information, but I think there remains a not-invented-here philosophy around the creation and maintenance of the algorithms.
