against hierarchy

source: consumerpedia blog
"hierarchical folksonomy": "Anyone can create a category, a sub-category,

In my opinion creating any kind of hierarchy gets in the way of recall. 
  • "Simpson >> openers" is just as valid as
  • "openers >> Simpson"
Having the consumer guess which hierarchy was subjectively imposed is not helpful.

Note that fastblogit presents you with a hierarchy as you navigate tag rooms,
but that hierarchy is based upon the user's choices during recall.  There is no guessing game, only interpretation of word usage.
