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.

On July 8, 2014 I filed a freedom of information act (FOIA) request with the FBI asking for all files relating to Tandy from 1919 through 2000. I was later told that there were approximately 5,457 potentially responsive pages, and agreed to narrow the scope to reduce processing time. We reduced the timeframe from 1970-2000, and discussed the types of information I was interested in receiving first (my primary interest is information regarding the TRS-80 computers.) On September 28, 2018 I...
