Keynote: Integrating Folksonomies With Traditional Metadata

A session at Taxonomy Bootcamp

Monday 15th November, 2010

9:10am to 10:00am (EST)

Thomas Vander Wal, Principal, InfoCloud Solutions, Inc
Many organizations have considered or tried integrating folksonomy with their more traditional approaches to metadata to achieve a more emergent set of metadata to increase finding, aggregation, and sharing of use of information. Having a solid understanding of folksonomy and associated metadata helps provide a solid base for integrating it with traditional metadata so to get optimal results. Hear from the expert who coined the term "folksonomy" and take away ideas and insights for use in your environment!
