        No, normal user do not seem to be able to add new tags. I guess that only administrators can do it. I’m sure that the decision to not allow everybody to add tags is because tags would be quickly duplicated and non-standardized.

          The sites at stackexchange got this working, and the community is actively working on improving the tags. Maybe lobste.rs could have it implemented in a similar way?

          It amazes me how Amazon has been diverging its strategy and going from selling books to hardware owned products.

            Yeah it really surprises me. The move into web services made a lot of sense to me due to Amazon’s experience with it on their own infrastructure. The Kindle made a lot of sense to me since it seemed like a move back to their roots of books.

            I guess the Kindle Fire and now this phone are Amazon realizing the Kindle hardware they’ve been working on isn’t bad and having a crack at other big markets.

            I wonder why the Mozilla team have not only built the Firebug extension in Firefox core and expanded on it rather than compete with it.
