Organizing collaboration on the web is all the rage. We all know about Taxonomies and Vocabularies. But when the common folk got ahold of taxonomies, we got folksonomies (e.g., to organize tags in scrum.ptio.us). We now have collabularies to account for the lack of collaboration that happens in the folk process. But we also have Ontology to recapitulate Philately to provide a formalism of a conceptualization. With the advent of Linked Data, we have the possiblity of collaboration in our ontologies, or colontologies. But what about those vocabulary folks?
Clearly, we need a formal, collaborative, folk, conceptual, controlled, taxonomic, strucutred form of group knowledge. A Folks Collabulology. A structure that combines all the best of these things. I have prepared a brief video that explains everything you need to know about folks collabulology.
I showed my Folks Collabulology to some famous people - here is what they said:
"I was positively impressed with Folks Collabulology." - Doug Lenaut, CEO, Psych Corp.
"A new paranoia for computing!" - Kiva von Sap, web entrepreneur
"It's Specification, not formalism" - Tom Groober, inventor
"Numa, Numa" - The Numa Numa boy
