A Taxing Dilemma

When it comes to Web 2.0, are we all just tagging along?

A scientific taxonomy is different than a folk taxonomy which is still yet more different than a folksonomic network that is creatively "going meta" with the data.

Mr. Big Science has a serious stake invested in the art of taxonomy. Anything even resembling a clustercloud of semantic frottage reeks of fauxonomies.

Apparently, "going meta" is also a way to influence the progressive netroots political community as well.

(Warning: do not follow this last link above in hopes of making any connection between contemporary art and writing and the so-called progressive netroots scene. As usual, there is very little overlap between what they are doing and what hactivist net artists are up to.

How do I feel about this?

I don't.)
