Folksonomies & tagging

Paper by Sarah Hayman for Edu.au (Australia) proposing a model for combining folksonomies with taxonomies. Basically the approach is to have user tags referencing /directed by a taxonomy. This will either be through a thesaurus or suggested term approach. I suspect this is a point many enterprise projects are at, once realising the current limitations (mainly resource/ procedural) with formal tagging to the advantages of social tagging (community based) .
