I’m basically an analyst. I’ve developed domain models for numerous different types of business, and latterly as an agile coach I’ve done a deal of process analysis too. In these roles I’ve always found the use of hierarchies to be very limiting and frustrating. Relationships between things rarely, if ever, fall into a single neat tree. And whenever I’ve seen a hierarchy imposed on something, future pain is the inevitable result.
So today I’ve added a ‘see also’ link to my blog entries, courtesy of David Raynes’ MTRelatedEntriesByKeyword plug-in for Movable Type. (It worked straight out of the box.) During the coming weeks I’ll gradually add semantic links between the entries and see what effect this has, if any, on the use of the category indexes.
