I love it when i find things like this that i had wish i had attended and someone managed to get on video and upload on the web. Dave Clarke Director of Global Taxonomy at Dow Jones was in Singapore this summer at a iKMS conference as a presenter and i just found these videos that Patrick Lambe at the Green Chameleon Blog posted back in September.
The best part is that i have seen Dave give this talk multiple times, but never managed myself to get it on video so I am glad these are out there because now i can always reference them. Thanks!
Patrick Lambe who posted these also just published a book on taxonomy development titled: Organising Knowledge: Taxonomies, Knowledge and Organisation Effectiveness that has been receiving positive reviews in the community.
To watch, i threw this up on my big monitor and watched the video while following the slide deck which was a good way to see all the slides.
Part One: Dave introduces Synaptica from Dow Jones and other Taxonomy management tools and how to use these tools to collaborate around taxonomies
Part Two: Dave take the audience through using Synaptica to create taxonomies
Part Three: Dave discusses integrating taxonomies into a business infrastructure, talks about the different systems that are typically integrated with a taxonomy management tool and the importance of using open standards (RDF, SKOS, OWL)
If you find these video's interested Patrick Lambe has other videos on his Blip.tv channel that might interest you.
