Ajax product configurator examples

I'm helping a friend who has a small business (total employees: 1, total
budget: $0 or maybe less) brainstorm ideas for a custom product configurator
for his website. Similar sites might allow you to see the clothes on a model
and change shirt colors, add various designs to a t-shirt, or customize your
new Mercedes colors, wheels, etc. He's curious to find out if this sort of
product configuration can be done well using Ajax/Web 2.0 technologies.

Folksonomy and last.fm

Hi everyone!

I recently stumbled across some papers about taxonomy/folksonomy (mind you,
I'm still a student).
I noticed the common oppinion about folksonomies is that they are not
reliable because of the
synonymy of the language.
