Taxonomy's Role in Content Management

Taxonomy's Role in Content Management. Article in eContent discussing the role of taxonomies for classifying content in a CMS. Interesting observations about what makes a good taxonomy:

    A good taxonomy, according to Weinstein, is one in which content is distributed evenly across the classification scheme. “The depth of the taxonomy should be relatively uniform,” he said. When some categories have too much or too little information, “it usually means that the people didn't understand the nature of the content they were classifying, or they believe that they had more or less than they actually did.” [ia/ – news for information architects]
