a random thought on tagging and declaring

January 27, 2013
I’m thinking about going at this backwards: not quire reverse engineering my declaration, but considering it already declared and laying it bare. The necessary ingredients should be there. I’ve got the tagging habit, mostly thanks to Vance and earlier Multiliteracies. 

So let me look at the tag clouds on my blogs and bookmarking accounts. Twitter tags and textual analysis of files are not out of the question but possibly more than I want to think about taking on just yet. 

However,a tweet cloud would be an interesting and revealing experiment. http://tweet-cloud.com creates a Wordle from any public account name. There are a number of other apps. 

Nor will I limit myself to education/teaching related blogs and posts because that is only part of my online online life. Most of my blogging and projects, from community and advocacy to personal interest, are information sharing and learning related. Including them in declaring could be a big step in integrating digital identities, already somewhat overlapping. 

Maybe this will even help me wayfinding and sensemaking through multiple massives (whatever was I thinking /not?).

    Thanks for the suggestion of http://tweet-cloud.com. Chris Jones said she tried it on my twitter acct VanceS so I tried it myself. I hit only one snag when it told me to enable JavaScript and submit. This delayed me overnight until I could get home from work and find my javascript settings, only to find out it was already enabled. It wasn’t telling me it wasn’t, just telling me to be sure. From there on it was a piece of cake, and I put the resulting Wordle here: http://multiliteracies.posterous.com/week-3-in-multimooc-making-progress-with-soci.What are some of the other tag-cloud apps you had in mind?
