Folksonomies, memes and misunderstanding

Learning with e's

I responded (as you do) with my own version: "A folksonomist: one who organises information in ways that make sense to his/her own community of practice or interest." I was thinking about individuals tagging and organising their own content using tools such as Delicious , and then making them available to others. Taking issue with it in his blogpost he says: "A folksonomy loses its qualities as a folksonomy once you have someone 'organising' it, and will quickly become a taxonomy."
