Abstract: Web 2.0 is indeed more than just a buzzword; it is the foundation for delivering a rich experience to end users on the Web while leveraging the benefits of composite applications and ubiquity of the Internet. Folksonomy is a user-generated system that allows users to tag their favorite digital resources with their chosen natural-language words or phrases. The tagging is done in a social environment, or may be generated and shared collaboratively by the creators and consumers of Web content. These tags can be used to classify Web resources and to express users' preferences. In this Tech Talk, the author explores some of the more common aspects of the Folksonomy in the context of Web 2.0.
