Tagging has been suggested a few times. If you're interested in this feature, please elaborate on:
- Tagging of thought plans
- Tagging of thoughts

I would love tagging! My thought would be to use it much like every other social site uses it. (Storehouse does it really well)
The user can input a tag in the form of a hashtag anywhere within a thought. In the #middle of a sentence. Or even at the beginning or end of a thought.
Clicking on one of these hash tags or searching would show a filtered list of plans.
This would allow the hashtags to be used as a filtering tool or for creating "soft categories." And because this is the way hashtags are used across many popular sites, it is intuitive.

Thanks for commenting on this, Isaac and Paul! I love the idea of using hashtags. As Paul points out, #Tagname will obviously conflict with markdown syntax for headings if used at the beginning of a new line.
I'm guessing we'd want to have hashtags only parsed inside the content of the thought, because there isn't much room for it in the name in the sidebar, right?
I would prefer tags to be just a way to organize and filter thoughts. I can tag a thought as #Florida then search all of my thoughts for #Florida.

I would prefer hashtags inside thoughts, for linking between them, and thought colors for "categories", as suggested elsewhere.
Occurences of that hashtag, i.e. #keyword will be transformed to links that open the corresponding thought where the hashtag was defined, and scroll this into view.
One can define hashtags like anchors somewhere in code using the syntax
where keyword must match /(a-zA-Z0-9._-)+/.
The definition is not displayed in view mode, except if one of these syntaxes is used (easy to remember):
