A client asked me an interesting question the other day: what’s the difference between Taxonomy and Folksonomy? So I thought I’d be a good Samaritan and share my answer. Firstly, Taxonomy and Folksonomy are common place on the web as tags – tags are keywords that describe data. Content creators and consumers add tags to describe their data. The difference between taxonomy and folksonomy lies in who adds the tags to the data.
Sometimes I find myself having daydreams and awake from them with mathematical equations or genius web design ideas, well this time I awoke with a half baked idea of what browsers could be like in 2010. I know what your thinking “oh god here he goes again”!
The impact of blogs on web usability Is something I am noticing constantly. Firstly lets all agree that the most frequented websites on the Internet are blogs, and secondly lets agree that blogs are here to stay, at least for the foreseeable future. The impact that blogs have had on personal publishing and news distribution has been phenomenal but the lasting impact in the post-blog Internet will change web usability and web design forever.
