You take tagging for granted. “Wait!”, you say. “I don’t take it for granted!”, I promise that you do. Whether you are a novice cloud operator or a seasoned architect, you take tagging for granted and, you are doing it wrong. How do I know this? Experience. Specifically, your experience.

The HTTP protocol is stateless, so the server and the browser should have a way of storing the identity of each user session.
