This one guy across the street keeps bugging me to automate his auto-tagging of LiveJournal entries. I finally got around to it, and did it for myself too after I learned the internal tag APIs.

I should make it a paid-only feature or something, since it's actually pretty fast. Took a couple seconds for the search I used to do the auto-tagging by keyword.

Statistically improbable phrases would be amusing. I suspect I'd have a huge "cocks and dongs" tag list. :D

You can, but you could also perhaps (with this) have constant keywords (applied retroactively and to all new posts) that map to tags.

Yes! A paid feature would be nice.

Talking about talks, I just wrote this minutes ago!

Re: so...

They don't. Yet at least.

"automate auto-tagging"? isn't that a little redundant?

Uh... forget the tags and just give us that search! You have no idea how many times I've tried to find stuff that I've written in my own journal, and couldn't. Google's indexed some of it, but not all of it. I'm not sure if FreeFind's been able to get all of it. Downloading it's sorta lame, especially month-by-month. A native search would just make so much sense.

Not very recently, though. Well, except for XM Radio.

Very nice. Both the tags and the idea of the tool.
