Folksonomy, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Mess

March 16th, 2005

Folksonomy, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Mess was a panel today at the O’Reilly Emerging Technology Conference in San Diego that included Clay Shirky, Stewart Butterfield (of Flickr) , Joshua Schachter (of del.icio.us), and Jimmy Wales (of wikipedia). Cory Doctorow has an ‘impressionistic transcript’ (I’m not sure what that means — I guess he’s not promising word-for-word accuracy.) It’s pretty interesting, as panels go, and includes some discussion of RDF and the semantic web.
