Today Technorati launched a very cool new feature, Technorati Tags. Inspired by the communal categorization features of flikr and del.icio.us, Technorati now indexes tags embedded in blog posts (you get this for free when you choose to categorize your blog post on most popular publishing tools), and now they are first-class entities within Technorati that you can search and explore, which should help drive more folksonomy in the blogosphere. Technorati’s tag-search results include photos from the fine folks at Flikr and links from del.icio.us, which makes tag exploration on Technorati a compelling multimedia experience. Some of my favorites: Mac, Iraq, iPod. Kudos to the team for another great release!
