I'm pushing out a couple of minor updates today, but here's what's really exciting: tags are coming soon.

Why is this a big deal? Because it give you a way or organizing your own posts (in a format that isn't naturally open to organization in any way other than chronological), and because it gives readers a way to find your content from a stream of similarly tagged posts.

Going forward, I personally believe tags will be the most common way people will find and read content on Wordfaire. Imagine a tag, say #libya, that would provide a stream of live news with images about the happenings there. It could very well help citizen journalism give traditional 'live' media a run for it's money.
