Epistemological level - how tagging can support discovery - creation of new ways to interact with the discovery process, i.e. SIR
Methodological level - new methods for structuring the communication in the context: tags
Social assistance level -new forms of assistance to correspond better to communities needs (e.g. own vocabularies, topical and lingual tag clouds)
