I’d be interested to know if anyone has had success using folksonomies in a corporate environment? There is an interesting cultural shift in control that would be needed and I suspect it would take a fairly forward looking company to do it!
User Interface Engineering presented the concept of Folksonomies in 2005. A way of looking at how users can actually define the organisation of content. One example of how this has found it’s way into our lives is tag clouds. This article is not an in-depth discussion, it’s included more as a historical reference.
