“Physical tagging!”

I’m completely taken by this concept. A prize, to be determined (by me), to the person who can figure out how we can do something similar in healthcare.

The explanation from Nina Simon:

Haarlem Oost is a branch library in the Netherlands that wanted to encourage visitors to add tags […] to the books they read. […] To do this, the library didn’t create a complicated computer system or send people online. Instead, they installed more book drops and return shelves, labeled with different descriptors like “boring,” “great for kids,” “funny,” etc

And a thought from Robin at Snarkmarket (whence I found this):

Is that great or what? Physical tagging! It feels like the informational equiva­lent of turning a dance floor into a piezo electric power generator.
