I’m playing at a side project to bookmark documents/links to later build wikis and technical guides. Audience is technical folks at work but ideally it will be simple for marketing too.

Folders are just like your heirarchical desktop folders. Nested if desired.

By tags I’m thinking like how YouTube does playlists (item can be saved to 0, 1, or multiple playlists). Flat.

Both would be single-level depth folders with tags used to subcategorize or cross folders.

What do you prefer for bookmarks, notes, or whatever you do?
