Tagging conventions

I've noticed that a number of people have mentioned that they use delicious for social bookmarking, and I was wondering if other HASTAC Scholars would find it useful to establish some simple way to flag things that you think might be of interest to other scholars in the group, even if you don't have time for a full blog post at the moment. If we had a shared tag, for example, we could use Yahoo! Pipes (or some similar tool) to aggregate all the content with that tag from delicious, Flickr, YouTube, etc.

(I apologize if something like this has already been proposed?I'm still reading over some blog posts and forum discussions that I missed the first time around.)

In my own tagging practice, hastac would be reserved for links to information on the HASTAC site, HASTAC-related news, etc. I personally find hastacscholars or hastac_scholars a bit unwieldy, and hs is probably too overloaded.

Something like forhs or for_hs might work, for example. Does anyone have other ideas, or is anyone already using a tag (or a combination of tags) for a similar purpose?
