Clay Shirky & Open Tagging

A conversation with Stowe Boyd reminded my of Clay Shirky’s recent piece called “Ontology is Overrated — Categories, Links, and Tags“.

I can’t recommend this highly enough to anyone interested in open tagging. Clay makes a great case why the del.icio.us-style approach to social tagging is inevitable (and smarter than any central authority could ever be).
