If you use an RSS reader, you loose track of weblogs that don’t do RSS. Victor has been writing about how to develop an interface that lets many business users create or populate taxonomies, and specifically about the difference between the backend taxonomy and the taxonomy that ends up being shown on the website, what he calls “display hierarchy” (he can’t seem to stop coining terms, which means he must be going where not many have gone before!

Victor: “OK, you’ve got a taxonomy full of info you want a whole bunch of distributed, internal, business users to manage and a website that displays that taxonomy, but in a very particular way crafted to the needs of customers and controlled by a centralized web group because you don’t want to simply display the raw taxonomy cause that sucks for navigation much of the time, and somehow you must do the taxonomy dance to tweak how the taxonomy content flows into pages.”
