RE: [Sigia-l] Eliminating categories in favour of tagging
From: Alexander Johannesen
What I argued for was a 40% controlled and 60% uncontrolled top-down
structure rolled into one. I've used, implemented and played with many
variations on this, but usually the 40/60 rule seems to be king.
This issue has been on my mind a lot lately, but it seems that every time
the topic of tagging comes up, we refer to blogs, photos, etc., probably
because they are common, shared experience that we can all visualize. I am
curious, though, has anyone had experience implementing a system with both a
controlled vocabulary and user tagging on something like a corporate
intranet? I would love to hear about your experiences.
