Tagging Enterprise IA

Lou Rosenfeld has begun a group tagging project, using del.icio.us to track links related to enterprise information architecture. Bloug: Experimenting with Tagging:

Do you use del.icio.us? And are you interested in enterprise information architecture? Then consider tagging your EIA bookmarks with the tag ‘enterprise_ia’. If at least a few of us start doing this, then, as the tag gods suggest, we’ll all benefit from each other’s research by monitoring the tag at ‘http://del.icio.us/tag/enterprise_ia’. Please spread the word to anyone who you think might be interested.

See del.icio.us/tag/enterprise_ia and del.icio.us/rss/tag/enterprise_ia to subscribe.

Lou also raises the question of how to increase precision in social tagging. I’m not sure that’s the right question. Folksonomy doesn’t seem to be about precision. It can be mined by someone who wants to create precise references but the point of it is not to have formal indexing structures. It’s hard to let go of that (I say from personal experience).
