A tag is a (relevant) keyword or term associated with or assigned to a piece of information (a picture, a geographic map, a blog entry, a video clip etc..), thus describing the item and enabling keyword-based classification and search information.
Tags are usually chosen informally and personally by item author/creator or by its consumer/viewers/community. Tags are typically used for resources such as computer files, web pages, digital images, and internet bookmarks. For this reason, "tagging" has become associated with the Web 2.0 buzz.
That's me.. always embracing the future. I'll do my best to keep my tags up to date and relevant to the information displayed.
Note: With the move from Wordpress to Jekyll I have wiped the old tags and am slowly adding new tags back in so this list may be somewhat lacking.
