Sites like del-icio.us, while providing an interesting (voyeuristic?) look into what sites other people are finding interesting, are primarily about collecting things for myself and making them refindable.
How is refindable different from findable? And further on how can looking at what cues people create for making things refindable for themselves inform what we do to make things findable in the first place.
I’m not ready to accept the easy answer that the cues to refindable are the best cues to findable. Meaning that I do not think that tag clouds are sufficient finding aids. What value do they bring to making things more findable? And can we figure out how to create that value up front in our content and organization?
