(he didn’t autoreferentially tag it with blogs)
Instant analysis: if the zero value of tagging is tagging a tag or an entity with itself (e.g.: 189 people (!) are tagging ‘http://del.icio.us/’ with the tags del.icio.us or delicious – see) and the informative value of tagging is – well – tagging entities with one’s associations (which implicitly creates a broader and richer tagspace via aggregating the tags of all other users), then tagging tags can be seen as an autopoetic turn in this scenario, with tags no longer pointing to anything outside but themselves.
