What shall we call these? LibraryThing tag-hops? ThingHops? ThingWhacking? (by analogy with Googlewhacking)

"Six tags" ?

I'm sorry, Tim, but "ThingWhacking" has a slightly off-color ring to it. Or perhaps that's just my warped mind!

I vote for "ThingHops".

Does Del.icio.us have an API for related tags? I might just make a site for that...

I don't think they do. They do have an API but it only lets you retrieve/modify your own personal tags and posts. As far as I can tell there isn't a del.icio.us API for retrieving "meta" information such as "related tags". Which is too bad.

I like TagHopping and LibraryTag... but think of it myself as "Six Degrees of LibraryThing."

It's interesting how often six comes up, that's for sure.

I'm with you, especially if someone accidentally hit an extra 'y' key. ThingyWhacking.
