Further to my thoughts yesterday on tags, folksonomies and file structures, I came across a much more eloquent article today on a similar theme from Knowledge Expert – Patrick Lambe entitled "How to kill a Knowledge Environment with a Taxonomy". Well worth a read, and I’m so pleased that these issues are starting to get into main-stream discussions.
