Folksonomies, Taxonomies and classification

Filed under: Organização da Informação — grazielamedeiros @ 03:44

O trecho abaixo é de um texto da ISKO sobre Folksonomies, Taxonomies and classification. Interessante a conclusão do artigo: “Folksonomies are a new, rapidly evolving approach to classification of digital objects. Much has still to be discovered and tested“.

Esse é um assunto relativamente recente na área de Ciência da Informação (e em outras) e necessita de relfexão, discussão e pesquisa científica. No caso das Folksonomias penso que são úteis para interção em softwares, sites e plataformas com conteúdos diversos, mais será que são suficientes para dar conta do conteúdo científico, principalmente no que tange aos periódicos científicos?  E os vocabulários controlados tão estudados na Ciência da Informação? Vale a pena pensar sobre e ver o artigo na íntegra..Segue o trecho:

“Folksonomies are not a theory or a top-down strategy: they were born out of a feature (folk classification tools) introduced by software like Del.icio.us <http://del.icio.us>, Flickr <http://www.flickr.com>, 43things <http://www.43things.com>, Furl <http://www.furl.net>, Technorati <http://www.technorati.com

 Folksonomies are not simply visitors tagging something for personal use: they also are an aggregation of the information that visitors provide. The power of folksonomy is connected to the act of aggregating, not simply to the creation of tags. Without a social distributed environment that suggests aggregation, tags are just flat keywords, only meaningful for the user that has chosen them. The power is people here. The term-significance relationship emerges by means of an implicit contract between the users”
