Fibreculture Journal: Coding? Tagging? and Qualitative Research

I have just discovered a very interesting online journal called Fibreculture Journal  ( 

I am not even sure how I found my way here...but what I have been looking at is an article titled:

FCJ-083Tag-elese or  The Language of Tags   It was written by Jan Simons of the Universiteit van Amsterdam.  It's another step in trying to understand what is coding (the official qualitative research term) versus tagging (the official Internet term). 

Silvana di Gregorio and I have written about this issue in an article that appeared in Qualitative Inquiry, but we were only scratching the surface. 

Take a look and see what you think.
