CommerceNet’s own itinerant Webmaster Kevin Hughes flew in from Hawaii on Saturday morning for TagCamp, and by that afternoon he’d already whipped up an intriguing study on the parts-of-speech used for tags and a stab at reversing the mix to automate suggesting tags for articles… come by our new offices on 169 University Ave to see a reprise of that talk and a ‘trip report’ on the success of TagCamp — 120+ attendees (!)

“This presentation explores the results of the lexical analysis of various tag collections as well as normal text. What can we learn from human-generated metadata to help make automatically-generated metadata set more usable, correct, efficient, and most importantly, humane?” — from Kevin’s slides on Lexical Analysis of Tag Collections for the Improvement of Tag Auto-Generation
