Free Tagging on, Peterme quoted

The Flickr acquisition not only raises the profile for rich apps, but also for tagging, getting significant coverage on about tags as a possible new approach to web search. Of course, the article is kind of silly - tagging won't overturn search, it just makes metadata less of a chore...valuable, but not something that will make Google obsolete. Tags are much more interesting when they complement other retrieval tools...and Peter Merholz touches on that in his soundbites in the article.
