2.0 book cataloging
I've been wondering whether cataloging for libraries couldn't be done socially a la flickr ... then I read about the Library of Congress project allowing the public to tag 2 large collections of vintage photos posted on flickr. The Library views the project as an experiment. How cool is that?
Then I read our assignment from Everything is Miscellaneous and he made it seem like not only would social cataloging be feasible but maybe even better than conventional systems. By way of looking for resources on citizen journalism, I came across Weinberger's blog by the same name and happened upon a link to a site called LibraryThing.com. It's site for people to list their books and among other things tag and sort them.
Not only is everything miscellaneous, it's already been done!
