The Folksonomy: a digital culture and creative practice knowledge commons
Authors: Perkins, S.Abstract:
The Folksonomy is a knowledge commons and social bookmarking tool of digital culture and creative practice. I created the web application in 2008 to support my PhD studies. In doing so it served jointly as a teaching resource (for supporting my teaching practice that is situated within the context of design and technology higher education) and as means for evolving a shared collection of interrelated concepts and practice. While the tool's publishing and concept-grouping features are now less relevant (due to me completing my PhD) the tool continues to be accessed globally (and hopefully finds new relevance for its value as an information resource).
