Hey Dude, Yahoo Wants You To Dig It, Tag It, and Share It!

The Yahoo team in Sunnyvale has filed for a new trademark/service mark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office that hits on tagging and sharing (aka MyWeb 2.0).

What’s the phrase Yahoo is registering?
+ “Dig It. Tag It. Share It.”
Serial #: 78720852

Kind of reminds me of the line from Fast Times at Ridgemont High — “Right, learn it, know it, live it.”

Might this be a new Yahoo/MyWeb slogan?

I’m guessing (oh no!) that “dig” means to look, search and hopefully find material of value. If not, using the word “dig” just sounds so cool! (-:

Of course, the slogan plays on Yahoo’s FUSE philosophy of finding, using, sharing, and expanding knowlege.
