New School of Ontologies

December 1, 2004

Thomas Vanderwal points us to Nick Mote's paper, "Folksonomies: The New School of Ontologies," a nice rumination on the folksonomies thread that was percolating a few weeks back.

One quote I liked: "Folksonomies are the bazaar to the ontology's cathedral."
