Feigning normality since 1973
Filed in: Weblogging.
So LiveJournal (and soon, presumably, all LJ based sites) finally has categories. Sort of. They elected to call them Tags and have users enter them as free text when creating/editing entries. What you end up, therefore, is a flat hierarchy of catagories... Now all they need is a way to apply tags to multiple posts at once, so I can go back and tag the first four seasons of Voyager reviews...
I'm unsure whether LiveJournal posts will start turning up on Technorati, mainly because LiveJournal doesn't currently have a way to ping any site other than weblogs.com. Technorati does have a page to manually ping them, but whether it'll recognise LJ-style tags is open to experimentation...
Now they need trackback too... :)
Edit: Yes, LiveJournal posts are now turning up on Technorati!
