Facetted Classification

Bottoms Up: Designing complex, adaptive systems, from the co-author of the Polar Bear book.
  • On: Why Yahoo inspired taxonomy build is a bad idea, that generates unusable results.
  • Says: Facetted classification is about changing questions. In taxonomy based systems the central question is “where do I put this?” but in facetted (bottom up) approch you ask “how do I describe this?”.
  • Facetted classification can also be thought of as a database where ” facets are fields, [and] controlled vocabularies are acceptable values.”
