Oh What a Tangled Web We Tag (March 27, 2005 09:42 PM)
The folksonomy - contralled vocabulary debates surge and sputter... Recently David Weinberger went "back and forth" on this: This is the promise and the risk of folksonomies. Folksonomies arise when people are tagging objects (Web pages, photos, etc.) in public. If you want something to be found by others, you'll... «more»

Our Ocotillo project's use of blogs+wikis+boards, coined last summer as "Small Technologies Loosely Joined".

Wists = flickr + (March 2, 2005 08:53 PM)
I am not sure yet what to make of wists - visual bookmarks, yet another variant following the flickr trail through the mountain pile of folksonomic tag mania. Create a wist account, load a browser bar tool, and when you are surfing and want to track a site in... «more»

I've been Skyped, Flossed (February 25, 2005 07:29 PM)
A few weeks ago I was audio interviewed via Skype by Teemu Arina, a 1 hour plus session between me in Arizona and Teemu in Finland that was remarkably clear, had no dropouts. In an almost heroic effort, Teemu edited this to a pod/webcast, painstakingly removing my frequent "umms" as... «more»

Woah, nellie! I had no idea when I clicked a link that said, "do not, I REPEAT, do not go here" (the old teacher reports read "Alan does not listen well to instructions") that I'd find this wildly fantastic flickr graph tool: Flickr Graph is an application that explores the... «more»

Poking Around Weather via WAP/WML (January 29, 2005 10:54 PM)

My Messy Pile of Leaf Tags (January 29, 2005 02:19 AM)
The new Journal Of the Hyperlinked Organization (JOHO) metaphorically paints folksomony and controlled vocabularies as "trees vs leaves": Folksonomies are different in important ways from top-down, hierarchical taxonomies — the shape we've assumed knowledge itself takes. The old way gets some experts together who create a nested tree of concepts... «more»

It's About Time I Read This (January 27, 2005 09:17 PM)
For the last year or more I have been blabbering about the "small pieces of technology loosely joined", so it was extremely overdue that I actually read the book I pilfered the phrase from. So thanks to a holiday gift card from Borders (which is really just a portal... «more»

Vancouver Aerial Tagging: Holy Flickr! (January 26, 2005 07:31 AM)
Holy Flickr! I just blindly stmbled into yet another wildly frenetic flickr functionality. I think it was Roland's feed that led me here, but flickr is being used, along with its note features, to create a collaborative map of Vancouver-- a series of closer and father up images of the... «more»

What We're Doing When We Tag (January 25, 2005 11:32 PM)
(with apologies to Meg's "What We're Doing When We Blog")... Discussions of "folksonomy" are meme-ing across the blog-space and I am disappointed that it is yet another round of issues being encamped in dichotomies. I am picturing something like a "Meta Data Professional Wrestling Smackdown" (imagine a deep booming voice,... «more»

Skyecasted Today, Some Other Cast Tomorrow (January 24, 2005 06:05 PM)
I'm into some crazy stuff. If you told me even last year I'd be having a 1 hour, clear, voice conversation over the net to a colleague in Finland, I would check to see what medications you were missing. But today, I was interviewed via Skype by Teemu Arina from... «more»
