Tagmash @ LibraryThing

Tim Spalding continues to do some interesting work on tagging books. The latest effort is Tagmash, the ability to combine tags in searching.
I've just gone live with a new feature called "tagmash," pages for the intersections of tags. This is a fairly obvious thing to do, but it isn't trivial in context. In getting past words or short phrases, tagmash closes some of the gap between tagging and professional subject classifications.
It is worth reading the entire post to see the thought process that went into creating the feature.
