Mob taxonomy

Tags get buzz because they’re decentralized and bottom-up. But one of the interesting uses of tags is mob taxonomy. At events such as dcamp and sxsw, the geek mob picks and publicizes a tag which is used to aggregate blog posts, delicious bookmarks, and flickr pictures
It’s an improptu, bottom-up sort of taxonomy, where the crowd consolidates on the tag and then posts it on wall and wiki.
