Folksonomies In and Flickr on Slashdot

Welcome Slashdoters! To those complaining about the grammar and such:

  • Please read it slowly..
  • Yes, I should have broken up that big compound sentence (It would never have never gotten past my yak comber). In my defense see use of semi comas, but I likely got it wrong.
  • I'm sorry I used too many unfamiliar and big words, I was trying to be compact. I did define Folksonomies in the submission.
  • And you should have seen the initial 5 versions! (I am editing "this" several times even after I hit the "publish" button)
  • joebetoblame figured out What is and Flickr

more : Wikipedia attributes "Folksonomy" to Thomas Vander Wa,
Beyond Laser Tag and Telephone Tag: "The Year of Tagging" and Keith Devens hints at something to come.
