Did you know that there is an annual Taxonomy Bootcamp? Well, mark your calendars for October 16th and 17th, 2012.
I have been considering conferences or events that might prove useful to my position as a digital asset manager. Having attended DAM events in the past, focusing on one aspect of DAM like taxonomy and controlled vocabulary may prove beneficial.
Check out the astute observations on The Taxonomy Blog gleaned from the 2011 event Tweets. Sounds like trends at the event included using facets or term sets for ease of updates, the challenge and necessity of incorporating social media (folksonomy) into taxonomies, and taxonomy tools.
