Tag qualifies as a buzzword

Tags. Labels. Folders. Etc. In software, they all serve the same purpose. To categorize and to classify. I can't help but chuckle a little inside when I hear terms like tag-enabled and tag cloud. Wouldn't term hierarchy be a more accurate description? I suppose not. It just goes to show how powerfully attached people are to popular buzzwords.
