They were right about the value of Organising Knowledge. I don't want "Taxonomy for Dummies" and O. K. is not that book, but it CAN serve the same need. If you are new to the field, or even if you have been doing this work in your company for several years and want to know more of what your company's taxonomy-Jedi Knights are talking about, start here. (If you are an expert, read the other reviews and make your decision.)
It is becoming my business to set up wikis for people. Reading Organising Knowledge is helping me to think about how to create the basic structures, rather than starting with randomly-selected keywords and hoping everyone will think of the same descriptors.
This isn't light reading. However, it's only difficult in that the material is new to me. The writing is clear and I'm not having any trouble following, if my brain would only not go off on so many side trail along the lines of "Oh, I could do THAT for this client..." or "NOW I see what those other clients were talking about..."
So: from the newbie seats--good book.
Also, +1 for talking about spimes. ;)
But 6 months later, when I purchased this book, (at that time, no comments are available on the amazon), I knew what we've get from the thousands dollars consulting is much less what I get from this book.
How I wish someone had published a comment before my project.
