Tags have taken the internet by storm. Where once the question was “what are they,” now all people want to know is whether a given site offers them. But what are the actual benefits of tags? What motivates millions of Flickr, and blog users to add tags to their photos and posts? And what is it about tags and tagging that gets information architects and user experience professionals so excited?

Ontology of Folksonomy

by 6 others (via)
Ontologies are enabling technology for the Semantic Web. They are a means for people to state what they mean by formal terms used in data that they might generate or consume. Folksonomies are an emergent phenomenon of the social web. They are created as people associate terms with content that they generate or consume. Recently the two ideas have been put into opposition, as if they were right and left poles of a political spectrum. This piece is an attempt to shed some cool light on the subject, and to preview some new work that applies the two ideas together to enable an Internet ecology for folksonomies.

SKOS, l'avenir de la folksonomie ?

J'ai déjà fait allusion à plusieurs reprises au vocabulaire RDF, SKOS (Simple knowledge organisation system) sur ce blog. Développé sous l'égide du W3C, il a pour but la modélisation et la mise à disposition selon le principe de RDF des thésaurus, taxonomies, glossaires et autres vocabulaires contrôlés. La mise en ligne des thésaurus existants au format RDF est fondamental dans le déploiement du Web sémantique, car cela permet d'associer à chaque concept une URI et ainsi de pouvoir y faire référence dans d'autres fichiers RDF.

[cs/0508082] The Structure of Collaborative Tagging Systems

by 1 other (via)
Collaborative tagging describes the process by which many users add metadata in the form of keywords to shared content. Recently, collaborative tagging has grown in popularity on the web, on sites that allow users to tag bookmarks, photographs and other content. In this paper we analyze the structure of collaborative tagging systems as well as their dynamical aspects. Specifically, we discovered regularities in user activity, tag frequencies, kinds of tags used, bursts of popularity in bookmarking and a remarkable stability in the relative proportions of tags within a given url. We also present a dynamical model of collaborative tagging that predicts these stable patterns and relates them to imitation and shared knowledge.
