TagSpace: Microsoft showcasing its social bookmarking at TechEd

One of the new technologies that Microsoft is planning to showcase at its upcoming TechEd U.S. conference is its social-bookmarking tool.

John Martin, Lead Evangelist for Server & Tools Online — as he describes it, “the group that manages the global MSDN, TechNet, Codeplex, and Expression websites” — blogged on May 23 about his unit’s plans:

“Next week (the week of May 26), we will release a preview version of Social Bookmarks for both MSDN and TechNet and showcase it at TechEd North America the following week.”

Microsoft launched the initial beta of its social book-marking technology, codenamed “TagSpace,” in 2006. At that time, company officials described TagSpace this way:

“This is the stand-alone service piece, along the lines of del.icio.us or other third-party social bookmarking sites.” Ultimately, it will act as “a means for Microsoft.com to begin to aggregate a ‘folksonomy’ of terms that can be used to enrich and enliven Microsoft-related sites and community properties on the Web.”
