Why Tagging Doesn't Work

It requires refactoring.

For example, when I bookmark something on delicious, I tag it with all the things I think are relevant to that site at the time. But the way I categorize sites and what things I believe to be important   change over time. So the only way I can search through my bookmarks to find all the things related to a certain topic that I wasn't even aware of before   is to linearly scan through all my bookmarks and re-tag them.

Is there a solution to this?
