You’re It! - Amazon Tagging:
Have I been asleep at the wheel? I was browsing Amazon this morning looking for a replacement filter for my Philips coffeemaker (and not having much luck) and I noticed an entry box at the top of a listing enabling site visitors to add tags.

I'm not quite sure what possible utility this could have beyond "Me too!" - but amazon is a pretty clever company and I'm sure they must have some purpose in mind. Off the top of my head it could be yet another aspect to the recommendations engine - "Here's what other people have tagged with 'creole cooking.'"
