Google Docs Gone Bad - Google, Fix the Tags
Google Docs tags aren’t working right now, which means all the new articles you write in Google Docs will end up in a big disorganized pile of whatev, and you get to go back later (when tags are working again) and clean up the mess. This may not be news to you if you never used Writely, but if you do I guarantee its going to annoy you to no end. So much for smooth transitions. I tell ya, if I was working for Google, this kind of thing would NEVER happen. I mean, how do they screw up something that was working perfectly just a few days ago?
Anyhoo, I hope Googlers are aware of this bug and taking it with the utmost seriousness, because without tags, Google Docs for you will be just Google Notebooks Deluxe, with no organizational functionality save sort by last mod timestamp, which forces you to scan through a long list of notebooks every time you want to write something down.
I posted about this over at Google Docs & Spreadsheets Help Group just to help get this issue see the light of day. It’s good to know I’m not the only guy having this problem.
