Taxonomy vs Folksonomy

We just posted the latest episode of The Malcontents. This time we hosted Theresa Regli (CMS Watch) and Tim Denby (BlueVertex) to talk about managing collaborative content. Based on recent dialogs on the CM Pros mailing list, Bryant and I were preparing ourselves for a heated debate. Collaborative content trends, such as free tagging, are disrupting traditional content management paradigms that are based on formal publishing processes and library science theory. However, instead of a debate, we got a lot of agreement on when collaborative content can be beneficial and how to manage it. What was the consensus? You have to listen.

On an administrative note, you might notice that we moved the podcast on to blogspot so you can subscribe via RSS and listen on iTunes and Yahoo Podcasts. You can point your podcast client here.
