Clay Shirky: Tags != folksonomies && Tags != Flat name spaces

"Professionals often think tags are covalent with folksonomies because their minds have been poisoned by the false dream of ontology, but also because tagging looks too easy (in the same way the Web looked too easy to theoreticians of hypertext.) Not only are tags amenable to being used as controlled vocabularies, its happening today, where groups are agreeing about how to tag things so as to produce streams of e.g. business research."

About the first interesting thing on tags I've read. And please, please, if you have to use "folksonomy" at all, please arrest it in quotation marks.

Gotta get those TagDefs done.
