Apologies for reviving an old thread, but I'm currently looking for
examples of hybrid bottom-up tagging/top-down taxonomy approaches
that have been used across enterprises. I've seen a fair amount of
discussion of plans for such approaches, especially in library OPACs
and in media organizations, but I'm not aware of any working
implementations of hybrid approaches for corporations. If anyone can
point me to even one that I could look at, I'd be very grateful. The
Buzzillions example is a great start, but I'd love to find more
