Episode 013 -Taxonomy Folksonomy and Knowledge Graphs with Ahren Lehnert and Bob Kasenchak

This episode of the podcast is a replay of episode 19 of the UX Hustle Podcast. We are revisiting this episode because Ahren and Bob will be the featured speakers at the June OOUX Happy Hour Meetup where they will connect the dots between Ontologies, knowledge graphs, and Object-Oriented UX. You'll find the link for the meetup below! Now onto the podcast...

In this episode of the podcast, Sophia, Ahren, and Bob discuss how taxonomies differ from folksonomies, how folksonomies differ from ontologies, and how common vocabularies keep design projects on track.

Ahren Lehnert is a knowledge management professional who has worked across many industries including  marketing, health care, Federal and State government agencies, commercial and e-commerce, geospatial, oil and gas, telecom, and financial services. Bob Kasenchak has worked in business development, product development, and as a taxonomist since 2012. They are both senior taxonomists at Synaptica, an enterprise taxonomy and ontology management software company.
