English abstract

"The mass amateurization of publishing means the mass amateurization of cataloging is a forced move", Clay Shirky says. Collaborative tagging is a recent feature for the participation of users in a web 2.0 world. Used in commercial environment, like google or amazon, to define user profile is recently proposed as self organisation tool in collaborative and shared systems like connotea or delicious, were agreement between users on a proper view of the world is critical for creating an useful shared context. The article examines the critical approach to the information architecture and point out the relation between “folksonomies” and esthablished library taxonomies to underline a possible cooperation in the information ecology of the internet.

Italian abstract

“L’amore delle masse per i mezzi editoriali significa che l’amore delle masse per i cataloghi è una mossa forzata”, dice Clay Shirky. Il tagging collaborativo è una delle recenti forme di partecipazione dell’utente al mondo del web 2.0. utilizzato in ambito commerciale da google o amazon per definire i profili-utente, è stato proposto di recente come strumento per i sistemi di collaborazione e condivisione come connota o delicious, in cui l’accordo tra utenti sulla propria visione del mondo è di grande importanza per la creazione di un contesto di utile condivisione. L’articolo esamina l’approccio critico all’architettura dell’informazione e cerca la relazione tra folksonomie e tassonomie biblioteconomiche consolidate, per sottolineare una possibile cooperazione all’ecologia informativa di internet.
