    I found this article interesting and well written, but I have to say I am disappointed that it does not go beyond simple hierarchies and traditional metadata. These are simple and useful tools, but metadata and classification can be taken much further than what is possible with the model outlined in the article.

    I wrote a paper on both the traditional methods as well as newer approaches that go much further, which can be found at http://www.ontopia.net/topicmaps/materials/tm-vs-thesauri.html

    I would be interested to hear from IA practitioners why they still stick with the traditional methods.
