YAF – Yet Another Folksonomy

Chris McEvoy illuminates yet another flavor of folksonomy: Bloglines users are a load of knitters has lots of interesting stats and analysis. Chris even makes a data file available of all 10K categories having >= 10 items. Very cool.

The top 10 most popular folder names on Bloglines are:

1. Blogs
2. News
3. tech
4. Technology
5. People
6. Politics
7. friends
8. Comics
9. blog
10. misc

I wonder if one person’s friends are another’s people and yet another’s misc(!?) What do you do with misc? Seems to me these categories would get more discrimating near the end of this list, but then of course your data points dwindle and vanish. Hmm.
