1Welcome to the Taxonomy CoP
- Apr 17, 2005Interestingly the first hurdle I had to creating this group was
where to place it in the yahoo hierarchy. There was no term
for 'taxonomy". (That would have been too easy!) Instead I looked
for other groups that had similar purposes such as those for
controlled vocabularies, indexing, libraries, etc. Here are the
classifications that I found for groups related to classification:
Colleges and Universities
Communications and Networking
Teaching and Research
and my favorite: 'Other' !
Someone responsible for organizing categories chose to put their
group into 'Other'! Interesting. So I chose "indexing" even
though it us under the publishing node. I think this is emblametic
of our challenge.
Feel free to post questions or topics for future CoP meetings. This
forum is free, the taxo conference calls will cost $50 per call.
