- Jan 12, 2009KeithThanks for this reply. I don't think there is such a thing as "success" in most taxonomy work there is only the possibility of improvement, much of it hard-won.What worried me about the reaction to the CMSWatch thing was how easily we can be distracted from the very difficult challenges we face (and I don't think yours are atypical) and how easily we are dismayed by a very distorted representation of what we do. We're in a tough, demanding, rapidly evolving field. We should in theory be used to remaining constant through such misrepresentation because we're used to it - though we might be annoyed that this comes as a sideswipe from people who should know better.BTW, Theresa Regli (who has a strong background in taxonomy work herself, which compounds the misdemeanour in my view) was the author of that particular prediction, and has come back to defend herself quite robustly on my blog at www.organisingknowledge.com.Maybe I'm being more cranky and stuffy than I need to be, but I really think we have to be more assertive and confident about what we do. Now Taxonomeus might be a step in that direction!!BestPatrickOn Jan 13, 2009, at 1:23 PM, Keipat Patkei wrote:
