  4. Baratunde -
    Yeah, sorry. I was leaning on the previous articles that this piece was a side-note to.

    If you look at the Get Info screen of a file, there’s a section entitled Spotlight Comments. You can put anything you want in there – In this case, I’m referring to the use of tags in this space.

  5. I agree that there is no right or wrong way to do tagging. However, what could possibly be helpful, especially for new “taggers”, is some set of simple rules to follow.

    I have blogged about some of my personal tagging best practices. However, what I’m not sure about is that whether they will work equally well for Spotlight as well as social bookmarking and/or blogging?
