So I guess I should admit to TagTagger being a joke, well sort of. Most people (but not all :-)) realized I was only poking a bit of fun at the Web 2.0 hype. I got some interesting emails though and quite a few links, so it was fun. Unfortunately no offers of funding - and in the end I realized I should have added the Paypal button to the page.
Actually the idea of having some way of storing where you used certain tags (for all taggable sites) so that you can go back and find them at a later date doesn't seem that way out really. Delicious already offers something like that for their own site and TagTagger would do that for all your sites.
TagTagger received (is still receiving) some interesting links - such as getting onto ZDNet and also here. It also made Matt laugh and funnily enough a few people thought it must be real because Matt wrote about it. They obviously didn't read his whole post.
Someone also emailed me asking whether it was "either a joke or really good PR", which got me thinking...
Anyway, the page will stay up for a while and I do own the domain, so who knows....

TagTagger: it puts more meta in your metadata!

"Enterprise Tag Tagger" made me laugh out loud. But in all seriousness it's a good idea. Something like this needs to be created in the near future.

Gawd this is hilarious. The line 'Take Back Your Tags' was a true coffee thru the nose moment. Well done.
And as Tim said, the Enterprise Tag Tagger might have real uses - check this post out http://atomiq.org/archives/2005/10/tagging_tags_to_make_synonyms.html
