Tag, You're It!

A few years ago, I was a real proponent of Google Desktop. I used it every time I wanted to open a file on my computer. Just hit Ctrl-Ctrl, type in something and get immidiate results. For some reason, however, I noticed that time after time, Google Desktop stopped providing me with good results. I don’t know what happened, but a lot of times it just didn’t find the files I wanted. I gave it a grace period of a few months (with several computers), but something was broken.

In order to do this for multiple computers you can have a server hold the list of file-hashes and tags for the user... you can also use this for auto tagging. If many users apply the same tag for a file - you can probably tag it.

That sounds like a great idea, actually. I might steal it from you :)
