Word stemmer de-dupes del.icio.us tags

FILED UNDER PERSONAL ORGANIZERS

A new “word stemmer” tool which works with the del.icio.us bookmark service susses out similar tags used for a bookmark or by a user.

So last week you bookmarked a great music site in del.icio.us and tagged it “mp3.” Today you bookmark another music site and tag it “mp3s.” If your del.icio.us tag list has gotten out of control (they grow like dandelions in the summer!) you might not notice you used two different tags that mean the same thing.

Punch your del.icio.us username into the tag stemmer and weed out duplicates for squeaky-clean bookmark organization. Works for all the tags applied to any web site, too.
