The evolution of HCI technology is a coevolution of HCI tasks and HCI artifacts: A task implicitly sets requirements for the development of artifacts to support; an artifact suggests possibilities and introduces constraints that often radically redefine the task for which the artifact was originally developed. [...] This dynamic relation, the task-artifact cycle, circumscribes the development activities of human-computer interaction

-- John M. Carroll, Wendy A. Kellogg, and Mary Beth Rosson in "The Task-Artifact Cycle" in Designing Interaction (1992)

Laniado, David, Eynard, Davide and Colombetti, Marco (2007): A semantic tool to support navigation in a folksonomy. In: Proceedings of the Eighteenth ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia 2007. pp. 153-154.

We propose a new approach to integrate the navigation interface of a folksonomy adding explicit semantics provided by an ontology. We describe a tool that uses WordNet to build a semantic hierarchy of related tags that helps users find related resources in del.icio.us. In this way it is possible to combine the advantages of the traditional approach to classification with the ones of the collaborative paradigm that is emerging on the Web, dealing with some of the main limitations to which folksonomies are prone.
