Websites

One of the first actions taken on the old site was to gather websites into a series of folders. At the time it was one of the only ways to gather useful sites into one place (some of this was pre-Google so you can see how old it is!).

Now, websites are visited, examined and if good enough, written up and tagged.This allows for more flexibility especially as a site might cover more than one area. I will attempt to keep as far as possible to the original taxonomy but will clearly add those areas e.g. e-learning, that were not part of my initial brief. I’m trying to tread a sensible path between folksonomy and taxonomy.

Before you start, please read the disclaimer.
