Here’s an interesting article on tagging as a transparency tool.

Transparency is a hot topic at the moment. I’m convinced it’s as much a tool for protecting the ownership and so financial interests of news organisations as it is a way of making sure we are getting the whole truth and nothing but; but we all win in the end.

The article also works as a nice round up of collaborative tools available on the web – if you work on line and haven’t heard of some of the tools in the article it’s a good dive in point.
