Folkscanomy: A Library of Books

Folksonomy: A system of classification derived from the practice and method of collaboratively creating and managing tags to annotate and categorize content; this practice is also known as collaborative tagging, social classification, social indexing, and social tagging. Coined by Thomas Vander Wal, it is a portmanteau of folk and taxonomy.

Folkscanomy: A collection of books and text derived from the efforts of volunteers to make information as widely available as possible. Because the metadata related to these scanned books are often done outside the library or cataloging industries, finding material can be more difficult. The Folkscanomy collection attempts to add a layer of classification for easier navigation.

This episode was a bit more of an experiment than usual. We'd either lost our special guest for the week or I'd not come up with a topic so this became what would sort of be what in the biz is known as a "backdoor pilot," the notion being that we tried out a format that, had it been unbelievably successful, we may have offshot this episode into a separate show. I'm actually glad that the backdoor pilot didn't entirely work because, what with the continued evolution of the show, an...

In which we chat the then-recent, OffWorld-related #HireAnton. This was our most challenging episode to date (I start blubbering about half way through). It was inspired by the fact that with Leigh Alexander's public dissing and lying about me, I discovered that one of the cats who joined in the chorus was none other than my former friendly acquaintance and my brother's still-best friend Toby Fee. The irony of Fee is that he initially claimed that he didn't know me, but I have not only pictures...
