As I still have work to do I’m not going to add relevant links for the on-going discussions on folksonomies, related tools and social implications, but just link to a few things.
Bits of research:
- Bookmark, Classify and Share: A mini-ethnography of social practices in a distributed classification community
- Folksonomies – Cooperative Classification and Communication Through Shared Metadata
Regarding the last one:
- Wonder how many people actually look at their del.icio.us subscriptions (I don’t)
- Thought that it would be fun visualising social networks based on similar linking patterns, but discovered that that particular feature is not in del.icio.us anymore. Given how often I used it as an argument it’s pretty stupid not having screenshots.
