Web of Ideas – Tags, knowledge, taxonomies, misc.

I’m honored to be giving the Henderson Lecture at the University of North Carolina on Dec. 7. For it I’ve written a presentation that’s a bit more philosophical and lecture-y than usual for me, on my same-old topic of tags and knowledge.It asks how closely aligned knowledge and taxonomies have to be, whether and why some taxonomies have special standing, whether tags can ever be false, and whether folksonomies really have anything to do with knowledge at all.

On Monday, Dec. 4, at 7pm, I’m going to read a draft of it at a Web of Ideas session at the Berkman (23 Everett St in Cambridge [map]), and then throw it open for discussion. Any and all are welcome. We even serve pizza. [Tags: ]

  1. Any chance of getting some slides or something like that for those of us who are not US based? (pretty please) :-)

  2. Any chance this will be recorded?

  3. I’m not sure what’s going to be recorded. But I seem to be writing this out as a read-to-yourself article, so I’ll at least post that. Unless I get boo-ed off the stage or otherwise humiliated.
