The category system on this site has always been rather ignored. I don’t think I’ve added or altered a category in 6 months. Many categories have only a few posts, and a few categories have the bulk of posts.
I think this site is much better suited to the concept of tags. Tags are like categories, but without a rigid hierarchy. They can be added on the fly, and used for global relationships between blog posts (using cool tools like Technorati).
The plugin I’ve settled on to handle this tag goodness is Ultimate Tag Warrior, an extremely well-written plugin that is worlds above any of the other ones out there. There are still some things I’d like it to do (paging of tag pages, for one), and I’ll likely be hacking these things in and submitting the modifications back to the plugin’s creator so that all may enjoy. Isn’t open source software fun?
Anyway, you can view tag results by going to:
