Without question, "tags" are all the rage. My del.icio.us links and Flickr photos all have tags. I'll probably even start tagging my blog posts in MT 3.3. Everybody's got tags – Technorati, YouTube, you name it, it's got tags.
Somedays I think I even think I'm starting to get the hang of "tagging" items. And then I go and read something like this, and I realize that I am so 2002.
See, while I've downloaded and installed MailTags for Mail.app months & months ago, I still haven't adapted to tagging my email.
Instead I'm doing the old faithful: folders. When I get an bill payment confirmation, I file it in the Bill Payments folder. A confirmation for an upcoming trip – straight into the Travel folder. And so on.
I'm making a conscious effort to try to re-learn email and move to tagging my email. Can I make it work? Well, that remains to be seen.
What about you… are you tagging your email??
