Principles of tagging

Tagsonomy is introducing a new member, Don Turnbull - an Assistant Professor in the School of Information at the University of Texas at Austin. He teaches a couple of courses related to issues that could revolve around tagging, including a course on what he calls "Knowledge Management Systems" as well as "Web Information Retrieval, Evaluation & Design" and even about designing information systems from the perspective of "Information Architecture & Design".

Getting better ideas with folksonomy, tagging

Businesses would get better ideas if they used social web tools and social media to engage employees, customers, and partners on a free flowing and unconstrained tagging basis instead of a pre-defined hierarchy of words that define the way things are or should be according to the business.

Endless possibilities

To get ideas - engage the wisdom of crowds, in ways you've never imagined possible. You can see this idea in action on del.icio.us and technorati.com.

Kathy Sierra from creating passionate users blog remarks on "The wisdom of crowds" ..."the wisdom comes not from the consensus decision of the group, but from the aggregation of the ideas/thoughts/decisions of each individual in the group."
