It's interesting to associate tagging in the web 2.0 folksonomy sense  
with tagging in the spraypaint identity-marker sense. Web tagging can  
be personal or collective based on the software, but I think most  
people think of it as collaborative communities of practice rather  
than markers of individualism - so lostempyre is my gang, but anyone  
can join just by choosing to use the word lostempyre. For me, the  
closest use to spraypaintimg up my personal identity is actually  
acountname creation - I try to leave iRemember registered everywhere  
as the mark of Joe, vs the mark of our collective enterprise.
