You can find some common TNWIKI tags at: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/wiki-common-tags.aspx
Internet pundit Clay Shirky said “The Only Group That Can Categorize Everything Is Everybody.” The idea behind a tagging taxonomy, or “tagsonomy” as it is implemented on the TNWIKI is that IT Pros can create their own ways of navigating and finding technical content through the use of tags.
For example, the PowerShell Survival Guide topic has the following tags as of this writing:
blog, blog link, cmdlets, download, Facebook, has video, liblink, newsgroup, PowerSlim, script, scripting, Scripting Guys, scripts, survival guide, tonyso, Twitter, video link, Windows PowerShell
So, for example, if you like the *idea* of the survival guide, and want to find other survival guide-type topics, just click the tag. This will even return a couple of topics that are titled “resource lists” which would not appear in a search for “survival guide”. Someone saw a category or structural similarity between survival guides and resources lists, and linked them with the tag.
You could even develop your own “table of contents” by tagging all the articles you wanted me to find with “top secret project” and then letting me know to click on that tag to find the articles of interest to us both. Of course, using that tag would *not* gain you a lot of secrecy…
In the example above, you will note a tag of “tonyso,” which is my e-mail alias. This is of interest to no one but me, but allows me to quickly get a list of articles that I started, which is not easy using search,.
“…folksonomies work because they leverage a very efficient natural language processing tool: the human brain. By offloading the task of disambiguation onto the user, folksonomies reduce the need for all of those fiddly niceties like hierarchy that ontologists have traditionally considered necessary.” [link]
My gear-fixation probably started when I was a Boy Scout. There was a tool called the Woodsman’s Pal that I *had* to have. It just looked, well, way more Ninja than the puny “hatchet” I used for years.
Turns out, the hatchet worked just fine, still does today. And as an adult I value simple, effective, uncomplicated tools that do something fundamentally important, every day.
As an IT Pro – Sysinternals BgInfo is one of those tools. Check it out. You’ll be glad you did, and it takes far less maintenance over time than a camp hatchet.
I started a topic on the (Beta) TechNet Wiki on Feb 28, 2010 called the “Windows PowerShell Survival Guide.” It was about 200 words long. It consisted of a list of weblinks (about 15) on all things PowerShell that I found useful. It took me less than 1 minute to log on and post.
I had four goals:
One year later, here are the results (as of this writing):
How’d we do? Leave comments. Thanks in advance.
The TechNet Wiki now has a Bing translator widget on each page, no charge. Free-as-in-beer.

Wouldn’t it be great if you had a visual representation of all the event IDs for a service, let’s say for example the Microsoft Windows Active Directory Domain Service, and when you clicked on one of the IDs, you could “drill down” into more info on that event?
Let me wiki that for you.
Kudos to colleague Kurt L. Hudson for creating this clickable map of event IDs on the TechNet Wiki.
Can *you* help fill in some of the”map”?
At customer events a few years ago we started handing out one-page "Survival Guides" (printed both sides and laminated) with links to important resources. The wiki versions of the Survival Guides are meant to do the same things without killing trees or using laminating machines.Please add resources you find useful, and/or rearrange the ones that are here, for example adding subsections - it is the wiki way!
Here are some resources about performance tuning and virtual memory:
Lors d'événements clients il y a quelques années nous commencé distribuaient des Guides une page"survie" (imprimé des deux côtés et stratifié) avec des liens vers des ressources importantes. Les versions de wiki de la survie Guides visent à faire les mêmes choses sans tuer les arbres ou à l'aide de machines de lamination.Veuillez ajouter des ressources vous être utiles, ou ceux qui sont ici, par exemple les paragraphes ajout de réorganiser - c'est le wiki way !
Voici quelques ressources sur le réglage des performances et de la mémoire virtuelle.
This blogs post is in French, which I do not speak, courtesy of the translator widget on the TechNet wiki: http://blogs.technet.com/b/tonyso/archive/2011/02/22/translate-the-tnwiki.aspx, via this Wiki article.
Now, if you read French, and this machine translation is not par excellence, then you are kind of stuck, because this is a blog post. However, if you want to bop over to the TechNet Wiki, start a new article,
and drop in this text, with your corrections, and then Save – Rock on ma mec!
