Taxonomic Distress

Lane Becker at Adaptive Path writes about the challenge of developing effective taxonomies for web-facing businesses in the first of a series of articles discussing how to develop them. He gives a few examples, (one attributed to Amy J. Warner) and brief discussions about why taxonomies are important for business web sites and why they are a challenge to work with. He indicates that he will discuss how he deals with more pragmatic issues (synonymy, relationships) in his coming essays.
