Folksonomy in the New York Times

Folksonomy is in the New York Times. Yours truly gets some ink and photo, as the article covers del.icio.us as a social networking tool around ideas and terms.

The article is a light introduction piece to folksonomy and tagging in general. But, the nice thing is the the writer, Ethan Todras-Whitehill, focusses on the personal side of tagging. This personal perspective allows people with similar vocabularies and interests to self-aggregate and build an ad hoc community around the terms and interests. My life has been richer through meeting David, Michal, and Michal's co-workers Eric and Tomas at Stamen.
