    What a great list! Thanks very much. My computing feels a lot like other buzz word marketing programs of the past. We spend so much time debating what it is or isn't that we don't have enough time to do it! Taxonomy is important, but you can't run a website on it!

  3. Thank you for linking to my blog. Kent Langley
