"In the part of this universe that we know there is great injustice, and often the good suffer, and often the wicked prosper, and one hardly knows which of those is the more annoying."--Bertrand Russell

A folksonomy is the collaborative categorization of user-generated content using simple tags. Or, in the case of flickr.com, they are a bunch of tags associated with photographs, which makes for a cool way to categorize pictures, in this case. So, when I heard about something new that categorizes pictures, I immediately uploaded some Hawaii pictures to my new flickr account. Pretty cool. The tags make it easy to search the huge amount of pictures they have there. I'll be adding as many as they'll let me.
