A Correction!

Frank Grazioli, of Wiley, writes in to correct my last post about taxonomies:

Wiley has been exploring taxonomies for its travel content business; the cooking/psych/accounting spaces might be our next logical opportunities because the disciplines are well developed, specific, etc., that content is authored or edited in fairly controlled templates that map to our own XML content models and our belief in content models and XML has evolved that “lighter” and “more agile” are better than taggy and dense. As you so aptly point to the contextuality and “rigor” of taxonomies, these tools would allow our XML to “slip on the right jacket” for the occasion. I apologize if we led you to believe that we already have firm taxonomies in place for the three areas you specify–I wouldn’t want readers/event guests to get that impression anyway.
