More to come but this is a point I want to make about the Web and process.

"The organic system of organization developing in Delicious and Flickr was called a 'folksonomy' by Thomas Vander Wal in a discussion on an information architecture mailing list (Smith, 2004). It is a combination of 'folk' and 'taxonomy'. An important aspect of a folksonomy is that is comprised of terms in a flat namespace: that is, there is no hierarchy, and no directly specified parent-child or sibling relationships between these terms."
