I need some advice. I’ve been trying to develop a personal schema/taxonomy** and I don’t really know where to start. I’m not looking for tools or anything like that, just some general advice. I guess another way to put the question is: if you had to organize all the stuff that a person comes into contact with, how would you do it? Do you have any experience in doing this, say, within the context of The Brain, a Wiki, or categories for a personal weblog? How did you go about doing it? Got any advice?
** After asking a few folks what the difference between a schema and a taxonomy is, I think what I’m really looking for is a schema of my world, that is, a system of describing the people, places, and things that I come into contact with. Once I develop that schema, I can then use it to build a topic map. (And even after all the searching and asking I did, that’s probably not really what I’m talking about here, but all the info I could find on these subjects was very specific (mostly related to XML) whereas I’m thinking about this stuff in the most general sense possible.)
