Don't you guys notice that you sometime type filename as a comment of what it is?

I do wonder if it would be better if we can comment on our files, and tag it... instead of having to put comments as filename.

Sort of an expansion on the idea... Loogle_20V2

       OS X allows you to put a comment on a file or folder.

       Directory structures ( other peoples) are the bain of finding stuff. Can't wait till the AI knows what I am trying to find.

       MP3s seem to do something similar, I have very few MP3s with their graphic "metadata" intact. At least right now, I think the notes would evaporate when the files transmit between a few systems. I think an AI, at each computer, that makes a tag cloud from the file contents automatically could work.

       It's had comments since the beginning* and an actual tagging system since a few versions ago.   

       *I think Classic Mac OS had comments on files too. Not sure.

       One step up is a desktop search engine like Google Desktop.
