Tags as shotguns

An interesting take on Technorati and the use of tags to describe self-describing data:

...we've got the Cro-Magnon shotgun of tags. We've got nouns trotting across our page like a first-year's bad found poem. We've got a technology wide, wide open to tag spam, and one that rewards the tag-friendly early adopters instead of the insightful, analytical and creative.
We here at PBBBS want to test this by adding the following Technorati tag code to our post...just for checking. link
