Daniela Barbosa put together The Taxonomy and Folksonomy Cookbook, which available as a free download.
It’s fairly basic, but makes some really good arguments and points about taxonomies and folksonomies. The writing is direct and very accessible–more for non-professionals. But if you’re trying to put together arguments for and against taxonomies and folksonomies, she’s done a lot of the work for you. Check it out.
Oh, the design is stunning too. Who says library science and information architecture have to be dull and boring?

Thanks for posting James and I am glad you like it. We tried to keep it fun and simple to ‘digest’ (excuse the pun ;-) and i have been receiving a lot of great feedback from enterprises who are just thinking about dipping their toes in.
My design team did a wonderful job of putting this ebook together. And i was very impressed because a lot of our usual stuff is soooo drab- so cheers to them!
And yes- just saw your email i do remember meeting you once at a IA Summit years ago and that you are also a SCILS graduate!
thanks for connecting on Twitter as well!
