Auto trackback and categorising Auto trackback and categorising blogs (via Ben): “When I author a blog post to be able to submit it to a categorisation server. This server to perform analysis on the content, analysis on my context (what it already knows about me), analysis on the context of the blog post (what URLs am I quoting, what am I tracking back to, and analyses of those posts) to provide suggested categories which I can select.
The categories would need to come from an agreed set of taxonomies.”

Repeat after me: centralized agreed-upon taxonomies don’t scale. Centralized agreed-upon taxonomies don’t scale. What’s worse: they don’t fulfil our varying classification needs, so even if they would scale it wouldn’t help.
