TangognaT turned me on to Cheap Eats at the Semantic Web Café from Burningbird. It’s mega meta-post on folksonomies and the Semantic Web. Technorati tags, controlled vocabulary versus folksonomies, the spam and abuse factors, Clay Shirky, Rebecca Blood, Tim Bray, etc. Insanely comprehensive and quite thoughtful insights on the subject. If you’re going to read one more thing on folksonomies, may I suggest you check this one out? Go. Read. And enjoy the photos. I’ve seen a number of mentions of folksonomies in the library blogosphere, but I’ve been a little surprised by the lack of discussion on the usefulness of folksonomies (versus controlled vocabularies).
