da InfoSpaces:

As I wrote in my preliminary post about FaceTag, this project is actually quite unique in its kind.I think about it as a sort of bridge between emergent and traditional classification tools. A mixed sauce that aims to smoothen both the limits of controlled vocabularies and of plain folksonomies.

The feedback that we got at the EuroIA was quite positive. I saw a lot of people interested, asking about further developments and the possibility to play with the tool.

This morning we published the slides that we used at the EuroIA and the revised paper with screenshots embedded. You are encouraged to download them and to let us know your comments, critics and suggestions.

We are no more the only ones with a similar vision in mind: Marti Hearst should be working on something related and I’m pleased to notice that librarians are evaluating similar approaches as well, comparing ontologies and thesauries to folksonomies. Have a look at the abstracts for the SIG/CR Workshop in Texas or to the call for papers for the next ASIS&T Annual Meeting.

It’s a little bit sad admitting that librarians are quickly catching up while information architects are still discussing about the usefulness of folksonomies.

I’m more for a pragmatical approach. That’s why we proposed a tool, not only a paper. That same tool is now in alpha and it will be soon opened to information architects to test its usefulness for their everyday tasks.

per me molto interessante…non so per voi;)

Un “gioco” basato sul collaborative tagging

questa volta il protagonista non è Yahoo bensì Google,

ha lanciato

da ajaxian

Google has released Google Image Labeler, a streaming Ajax app that makes it fun to label (tag) images apparently built with GWT (via TechCrunch). It’s a real-time collaborative app, where you work with an online partner, assigned by Google, to look at the same image and decide on some labels together.

vado a darci “un’occhiata”;)

Google Supports Open Source with Google Code Project Hosting

There is a new entry into the open source software code repository space: Google Code – Project Hosting. This will hopefully be a long awaited kick in the pants for Sourceforge.net which hosts many, many projects but can be difficult to find the cream of the crop, compare similar solutions
and weed dead projects from the results.

Tagging Support (called Labels)

Each project can be tagged with various categories by the project adminstrator. Note that tagging will end up being pretty arbitrary unless there are some kind of moderators going around and cleaning it up to achieve a common folksonomy. Users can enter any labels they choose, although some are banned (like “google“).
