Ontology is Overrated: Categories, Links, and Tags
From Clay Shirky’s Blog:
>This piece is based on two talks I gave in the spring of 2005 — one at the O’Reilly ETech conference in March, entitled “Ontology Is OverRated”, and one at the IMCExpo in April entitled “Folksonomies & Tags: The rise of user-developed classification.” The written version is a heavily edited concatenation of those two talks.
Clay Shirky has posted a new version of his Ontology is Overrated talk.
