kleinbl00 has outlined his vision for tags and crowdsourcing relatedness of tags numerous times before. It's brilliant. I can't find a link right now though and I really need to go to bed.

Being able to have actual related tags or parent tags or whatever sort of connect-the-dots mechanism for tags would be amazing in an ideal world. Knowing that #writebetterdammit and #writebetterdamnit and #writing are related. Seeing those tags when you visit another. Seeing that 'dammit' is used more than 'damnit'. Etc. Etc. Etc. I love thinking about it. I love hearing other peoples ideas about it. I love everything about doing "what ifs..." and ignoring all practicality.

But, logistically speaking, at best we're talking machine-learning madness and at worst we're talking a verifiable, crowdsourced, gamified algorithm program that allows people to start connecting all the dots for us.
