Shirky: Ontology is Overrated -- Categories, Links, and Tags
Today I want to talk about categorization, and I want to convince you that a lot of what we think we know about categorization is wrong. In particular, I want to convince you that many of the ways we're attempting to apply categorization to the electronic world are actually a bad fit, because we've adopted habits of mind that are left over from earlier strategies.

I also want to convince you that what we're seeing when we see the Web is actually a radical break with previous categorization strategies, rather than an extension of them. The second part of the talk is more speculative, because it is often the case that old systems get broken before people know what's going to take their place. (Anyone watching the music industry can see this at work today.) That's what I think is happening with categorization.

Scratching the Surface — 104. Cab Broskoski and Chris Sherron
"Cab Broskoski and Chris Sherron are two of the founders of, a knowledge sharing platform that combines the creative back-and-forth of social media with the focus of a productivity tool. Before working on Arena, Cab was a digital artist and Chris a graphic designer and in this episode, they talk about their desire for a new type of bookmarking tool and building a platform for collaborative, interdisciplinary research as well as larger questions around open source tools, research as artistic practice, and subverting the norms of social media."

This is not a module for large scale use, but rather a set of scripts to explain popular methodologies in text analysis, including Web Scraping, Preprocessing, Skip Gram (word2vec), and Topic Modelling.

Does some interesting analysis on delicious bookmarks. Finds that conditional entropy (Doc vs Tag) increases over time, average # of tags per bookmark increases and mutual information (info retrieval) decreases over time. conditional entropy finding is interesting b/c it indicates that a tag loses its value as a navigational aid over time. Interesting observation that popular tags features encourages less tag diversity which leads to higher entropy. Recommendation is to ask for tags that are not popular.

Models of collaborative tagging
Describes interesting research about behaviors in tagging systems. Interesting points:
- Tags as way-finders, navigational cues
- descriptive (what) and predictive (why) behavior models
- vocabulary problem - using different words for same concept
- Mytkowicz research: "there is a worsening trend in the ability of users to specify and find tags and documents when they are engaged in simple fact retrieval"
-- has been my experience as well
