A possible experimental hypothesis: places description will converge

I was recently following this discussion ([1], [2]) on Tag Clouds and the fact that on the long run, tags will converge to a Tag Set. I think the same can be verified for annotations to a shared map that are used to describe a place. In the same way, these descriptors wont follow a power law but they will converge to a stable set. So, I tried to formulate a running hypothesis:

The descriptors of the places of the map do not follow a power law, on the contrary they tend to converge to a stable set.

Recent debates on letting people tag their content over the internet argued that the tag sets used by people do not follow power laws. Here I make the hypothesis that sharing content on the map of the city is not different from that …
