Fan Is A Tool-Using Animal—dConstruct Conference Talk by Maciej of pinboard
Some people are very focused taggers. They treat tags like folders; they may only have ten or twelve tags that they bin everything into. I'm not disciplined. I just type what comes into my mind.

But the fanfic people were doing something very different. They had converged on a set of elaborate tagging conventions that allowed them to turn Delicious into a custom search engine for fanfic.
[...]
In 2009, when I started my own bookmarking site, called Pinboard, I really wanted to lure over fans with their amazing tag collections.
[...]
Being a canny businessman, I posted a gentle reminder that there was still a bookmarking site that let you search on a slash tag.

So fandom dispatched a probe to see if I was worth further study. The emissaries talked to me a bit and explained that my site was missing some features that fans relied on.
[...]
In my foolishness I asked, "Could you make me a list of those features? I'll take a look, maybe some of it is easy to implement."

Oh yes, they could make make a list.

I had summoned a very friendly Balrog.

Is This a Kissing Book? (Done proper, by Øystein Bech Gadmar)
You may remember, a while back, I received an LOTR/Princess Bride parody crossover from DeVee, and posted it here. Many of us added our own funny quotes, though it was never quite put into any particular order. Well, Øystein Bech Gadmar just emailed me this--the full LOTR film trilogy script, as told through Princess Bride quotations. This is pretty much total brilliance. I'll post it as the talented ØBG sent it:

Stand back and watch a professional at work - cleolinda
LOLs forever. Thank you Mr. Priest, thank you. The comments inspired by your tantrum have made my week. (Also, yay! more books to add to my to read list.)

"Author Christopher Priest (perhaps best known for The Prestige) is not happy with the Arthur C. Clarke Award shortlist. He is not happy at all.'
